Continuity test of the coil looks OK in that its not a dead short or open circuit.
Any pointers? Loosing interest rapidly!
Recon it's condenser too ,there either working or not,though have had some intermittent working ones
Not often it shows with flywheel mags but sometimes the points go black that's a good indication the condensers not happy.
Could even be the plug cap or lead sometimes the spike that makes contact with the lead can get corrosion at the end
