ignition

Ok, so i wasnt getting spark. new cap and rotor--then i was getting spark to the points but couldnt get it to arc from the plugs. new ignition coil solved that (the old one must have been weak-so if you ever have fire at the points but its week it very well may be the coil).

now im getting plenty of spark, but i believe the points are intermittently grounding out. any tips?
