The condensor and negative coil wire both attach to the contact points. When the points are closed the ignition coil charges ( sota speak) and when the points open, the coil discharges a spark to the spark plug. The condensor is an electrical "shock absorber", it smooths out electrical spikes.
Good luck, make sure the point gap is correct.

I have a 20 hp briggs and stratton that wont get any fire


Check the diodes in the wires to the coils. Trace the wires from the coils, and they should join together into a single wire. In the junction of the wires, there is diodes. There is a possibility the diodes burnt out which will not allow power to the coils. My experience was when one burnt out and only one cylinder would run. I replaced the wiring and both cylinders worked fine.

Have you also changed the spark plug too. The ignition circuit is pretty simple, from the battery, the Coil is energized, the "points" or equivalent, through the "Distributor" or equivalent, and onto the Spark Plug. So it is a simple matter to work along the path, proving the "Integrity" at each, point by testing. IF it still doesn't fire after ensuring all Leads are OK, the Spark Plugs are proven OK, the Cables, the Points, & Distributor, . IT is either that or the Ignition Timing is OFF. Please check all those points.

8 hp briggs no spark,new coil ,new electronic


make sure the plug wireisn't grounding on sheet metal. Verify current to ignition module and that module is securely mounted for grounding. Negative side of coil to module, pos to ignition switch or starter button . Chk for current at coil +. . Coil -- should pulsate when cranking. Ensure there are no inline fuses, fuse box fuses, or fusible links incorporated into wires lesding to module. Good Luck_Ned_
