First try removing distr cap. Turn ign sw on. Remove rotor button. Run a flat blade screwdriver thru points. You should see sparks. If you do, the clean points with sandpaper. Set gap and crank the engine with the distr cap off. You may need someone to turn sw while you watch points. You should see spark each time points open and close.

You could also have the points grounded. Is the plastic insulator isolating the wires to the stud post on the points.

Also, Tim - welcome to the BCF, but this is the section dedicated to questions about using the forum itself. You'll get more response if you post your question in the Triumph section.
