I agree with R. Geiger! Fix the problem and don't worry about the other stuff until later. It may all need done but now is not the time.

Do the simple things first. Have you burnished the points? They will corrode setting there. I actually file them but that will raise another discussion. A quarter placed across the ballast resistor (if it still has one) will give a boost to the spark.

After that either a test light or a meter and check, one step at a time.

Good Luck,
