Ha,Ha well done you
Going off what you have told me via other means, I am leaning towards the condensor for that cylinder, it is rare that they fail to the extent that you do not get a spark (but it does happen) normally when they fail it just causes the points to burn out.
Have you had the coil for that cylinder off to see if if it has a 'pigs tail' earth? if it has it is very important that it clean (be carefull it is delicate) and that the surface it is sandwiched against is also very clean.
