My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
Is this engine equipped with a magneto ignition, or a battery ignition?
Did you clean the points before installing them?
Did you set the gap to the proper .020"?
Did you use the proper spark plug (RH10)?
Did you set the plug to the properl gap? .018" if running on LP, .025" if equipped with a magneto ignition, .035" if equipped with a battery ignition.

If you have replaced all of that, and still do not have spark, I am going to be unable to help you.
I will opt out and let someone else take over.
