Hey guys. Having trouble with spark. I installed new points, condenser, cap rotor etc. My points do not spark. If i "bridge the gap" between the edge of the points (not across the contacts) with a screw driver, i get beautiful blue spark. But across my contact points, i get a teeny tiny spark, and sometimes not at all. If i mess with it and open/shut the points a hundred times, maybe once or twice it will spark correctly. What am i doing wrong? I cleaned up the distributor top plate taht the points mount to, in case it was dirty, that didnt help. Replaced condenser and coil both with known working components. Didn't help... Tried two new sets of points, didnt matter.
any ideas?? This should be simple, ive installed a hundred sets of points on other tractors.
