Sounds to me like the points aren't making contact. If the strap was grounding out, there would be continuity to the block all the time. Like Bruce said, the only time you should have continuity is with the points closed so if you never get continuity, they aren't closing or making good contact.

Well...you were right.....is there such a thing as "bad points"?  I put one of the points I had used last night on another d4-10 I had sitting around....same result...no fire....hmm...went over to one I knew ran....and checked its continuity.....yep -it worked like it was supposed to.....went to my parts shelf and pulled out another new set of points.....put them on....I have fire!

 

I took a file to the points that were "bad".....and think I got it fixed.....would they have oxidized or had a sealant on it that would have prevented it from working??

 

Anyway.....got fire again...Thanks for all your help!

The only other thing I would add to what Bruce and Doug are saying is that even new points can have some junk on them that will keep them from contacting each other.  Sometimes its manufacturing dust, sometimes its almost a waxy substance.  Sometimes it is even oxidation. 

 

Whenever I mess with new points, I always take a brown paper bag and rub a piece of that between the points.  Whenever I have old points, a good diamond file is best.

Parts tractor is running- could use some adjusting but starts every time- I will put it, when I have time, in one of the first BH I bought that has a busted rod. The other motor was on a D4-10 that I bought back in the winter. It was non-running. Pretty pleased as it was an easy starter as well.
