You need of course, a coil and resistor, hook your 12 volts on one side of the resistor, the other to the coil (-), then the other terminal (+)on the coil goes to the points and Condenser.
Be sure the points have a ground pigtail, (most do) from the points body to the advance plate, and the hot wire isn't hitting anything else.
Set the points about 17 , and make sure they open and close, and you should be all good.
