OOOhhhhhhh.... -sorry
points are just a couple-a-days before my time , so I usually refer to my buddy Don Hollingsworth on stuff like that.( he rocks! )
I'm sure you have already gotten the advice you were looking for ,but if not -shout and I'll consult him.

The points are like a switch.........They make the coil fire. The points need to be clean and set at a certain gap when open.....usually .017-.019. Feeler gauges are used to do this.

Like said......new oil, fuel and new plugs are a must too.

Chances are the carb is pretty munged up too.....taking it apart and cleaning it would help.
