So what do I look at next? Bad wiring, coil, condensor, something else?

It could also be as simple as a bad spark plug.
Do you have any oil mist or coating inside the breaker box? ......I've seen Wisconsin engines where the oil followed the points plunger and would coat the points. .....Once the oil dripped off the points, the engine would re-start and run properly until enough oil entered the breaker box to repeat the cycle.
Also, the insulator at the bottom of the breaker box may be worn or broken.
How about a failing ignition switch?

A bad condenser will raise the voltage to the points, causing them to burn & require dressing the contacts. I would try a new condenser. Now why a new set of points made it worse I'm not sure, unless the new points need dressed as well. I've had many sets of brand new points that would not make good contact until I dressed them down.
I put in a new condensor this week. Ive run the tractor for a few days now and its been running great. Actually better then it ever has, I timed the motor using Wisconsins Engines recommended way.
Thanks for the help.

Points came from a small engine place outside of Milwaukee and the condenser was ordered through NAPA.
