It could be the condensor. I have oftentimes tried everything else and then that turned out to be the problem.

Oh well, there goes that theory :( . Could it have a sticking valve? Hows the compression?

You say that you got a consistent spark today.  Was it a good blue spark or a more weak yellow spark?  If its not a nice hot blue spark then something in line is not right.  Plug, points burned a little, plug wire, coil, condensor.  When I am working on a small engine and I dont have starter fluid on hand and I know that the carb may have an issue I take the plug out and dump a little gas in the plug hole and then put it back in and give it a crank.  If the spark is there it should fire off if it has good compression.  At the least make a put or two before it burns the gas out of the cylinder.

It had a good healthy blue spark! Tomorrow I will try a little gas; I normally use gas, but somebody gave me the can of starting fluid one time.

It took much longer then I wanted, but I got a spark plug. I put it in and it now only runs on spurts of gas. I knew the carb would need to be cleaned, and when I took it off... it was horrible! I now have it in carb cleaner.
