Hello Brad, I'm Tan. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and will reply momentarily.

Correct you should have one set of points, condenser and coils for each cylinder.

Here is a diagram of the components. They should all come apart. http://www.marineengine.com/parts/mercury_marine_parts/static/img/FORCE/823056/5.gif

You did disconnect both wires from the stop switch correct? If the switch is bad it will kill spark on both cylinders.
