Question about Alfa Romeo Spider
Most likely the points, but check the low tension coil wiring as well. If the points have got stuck together during storage or if the wire to them is disconnected then you won't get a spark. If they've slipped totally closed you won't get a spark either. Replace the condenser at the same time, they don't last forever and are cheap.
After changing the points or re-gapping them, you MUST re-time the ignition, statically to begin and then dynamically once the engine is running. ****** the timing slightly from standard to take account of lead-free fuel, unless the car was supplied from new to a lead-free country.
