make sure the bottom point isnt earthing on the magneto i had it with mine.
theres a thin piece of metal runnning off of it place a piece if plastice / tape etc under it to stop it shorting before reaching the plug

The piece of plastic is in place,above all that is a brass effect tube is that the condenser,if so the 2 screws that hold it in place are missing,it does move slightly would this cause the no spark problem

Are the points opening and closing??

Also are you getting any reading from the coil?

If any other questions give this guy a ring for info

If your getting a poke from the HT lead, check the plug is not buggered.

Even new ones can be U/S, If you know anyone with a runner see if you can borrow there plug to see if that cures the problem.

Best of luck
