Yep, those are some of the typical issues that come with old age and/or not running for a long time. You probably will be going thru each system, but take it one step at a time. If you perform the basic fuel flow test first, that'll tell you if the fuel system is plugged somewhere, leaves in tank or not. Yu can do a quick visual in tank with your Mini-Mag flashlight just to see if there is something. It's been reported that rags, tools, and mice have ended up in there as well as dirt and rust. If fuel flow test passes, move on to electrical/spark test. Best to go through the wiring first just to ensure wires at least are connected to where they are supposed to be connected to. You can deal with replacing the harness later since you say it had been running. I'd seriously think about trading in that 8 battery for a new, good GRP-1 6V battery. You say you have new points and condenser -what about plugs? How do they look? You mean the ignition key switch on the steering column or the starter button on the trans shift cover? New parts can be bad out of the box these day, especially the cheap clones and/or non-original type. Key switch should only have two wires. bay steps, and keep us updated...
