New to tractor overhauls, and I got ahead of myself with "upgrading" the ignition components on my newly purchased 8N Ford Funk (226 6-cyl). I replaced the coil/points/condenser/distributor, but was not aware of the need to set the gap on the points.
Any tips on how to do this, and what gap is needed for the points would be greatly appreciated.

It was running before I took it apart to replace the main engine seals, but now it just cranks and cranks without firing. I pulled out a plug, left it connected to the ignition wire, and there was spark there. I literally felt it while holding the wire, that shouldn't happen right?

Overconfident in MN,
