son ran out of gas and forgot to turn off switch and now won't start. Did something burn up like coil or something else? Thanks Joey!

How about a little more information about your engine?

 

If its a points and condenser system you likely burned the contacts

Most likely the contacts will need to be cleaned or replaced, the battery is likely drained as well.

checked points and cleaned them and set gap. Still no spark even held on to coil wire to see if was plug. What else could it be? Thanks Joey!

Sounds like you need to get out the meters and start checking everything starting at the battery ground, then switch, and wires.  A diagram would help and should be here somewhere.

Is this electric start or pull start?

Battery is likely drained either way and will need to be charged.

I got it running,change the points and coil. Was wondering did the 67 models have a fuel pump? My gas line come out of tank runs across the back side of engine than go up about three inches into carb. some times when going up hill or sideway it bogs down. Thanks Joey!
