Those points appear to be open and they're not setting on the lobe where you would set your point gap which is around .020." That rubbing block appears worn. I would install a new set. Hal

I set the points at .020 on the wide lobe and it didn't start so I tried setting the points at .020 on the "long" lobe between the flats just to see if it worked. That's the reason the points are open. You're correct that the rubbing block is significantly worn and the points need replaced, however, I am getting good fire from one side (the wide lobe opens the points and fires the cylinder). Your advice is good and I'll try to find new points and maybe even a new distributor. Thanks!

You can get points at this number. Hal


PS: Once you have the new points installed reinstall the cap, plug wires & and coil wire then see if the engine will run ok. Make sure you're getting battery voltage to your coil. With the points open and the ignition switch in the on position you should have battery voltage on both small terminals on the coil. If you're not getting any fire to your plugs with the new points take a cotton swab dipped in alcohol and clean the points. Then see if you have fire to your plugs. I would clean the rotor too.
