The ignition system is a Kettering System. It requires the battery, coil AND condenser to deliver adequate spark. Look at the link for a clearer understanding of it's operation. The condenser not only helps to protect the points but upon the points opening forces momentary continuation of the current through the primary of the coil thus enhancing the strength of the magnetic field.
I have had new condensers bad out of the box. If you have the old one I would suggest sticking it back in for a trial.
Do not just throw parts at the machine.
