ok, since you have the points, I assume you have the B43g Onan
engine. Was it running before the new parts were installed?
Check your point gap and make sure it is .016, plugs ahould be gapped at .025 Make sure your plug wires are good too. Should be somewhere between 0 and 10,000 ohms per foot, when measured with an ohmmeter. Once everything is rechecked for gap distance, make sure there is no spark by pulling plug out, leaving wire on and ground the outside of plug to the chassis of the tractor.
Crank over and look for the spark. Coils are about $100, so you want to eliminate everything else first.
Diagnosing a points ignition for no spark is really simple. Do you have 12V at the coil? Do you get a spark when you connect and disconnect the negative terminal of the coil to ground? If not you have a bad coil.

When it comes to carb adjustmant,my recomandation is for you to seek a professional to do it for you. You can fight with it for a while and not get it,small engine mechanics that do it all the time could have your problem fixed rather quickly and wouldnt charge you much,but thats up to you.

Purple wire goes to the solenoid on starter.If you installed starter with single wire post all you have to do is mount a solenoid to the frame just in front of starter,existing batt/starter cable goes to one solenoid post,purchase a short red cable and install on other solenoid post and run it to the starter,plug purple wire into new solenoid and the way you go.

Testimonial: "This was great advise bought a solenoid and away i go thx"
There are 2 likely problems.
First spray a prime in the carb and see if the motor runs on a prime. If it does then you need to remove your carb and clean- there is likely water in your fuel.
Second- check for a sheared flywheel key.
