Changed points and condenser with right parts. Won't start.

Customer Question

Changed points and condenser with right parts. Won't start. Getting fuel and battery is good
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: Changed
JA: What is the model/year of your VW?
Customer: 79 Super Beetle - just changed the fuel filter also but was working well until this last tune up
JA: Are you fixing your Beetle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. Checked wires and point gap. All seems good
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Reason for the tune up was it would "bog" down at high RPMs

No. a few weeks earlier. Ran ok after the fuel filter change
