Did you make sure to turn the switch on? I forget to do that sometimes. Also, could be a bad switch. However, you went from spark on two to no spark at all; that is significant. Also, yes, remove the ground wire from battery to where it is bolted, make sure a good ground and bolt back. You can check coil on bench for spark. A condenser is a capacitor, that can be checked with an ohmmeter for short or open. Also, I check for points opening and closing with the distributor off; use an ohmmeter; one probe grounded to the body, then other on the point side that is not to ground, rotate shaft. If you have a beep setting then set it to that, beep, beep, beep as you rotate the shaft. You can check the resistor by ohmmeter. We have to do this scientifically instead of guessing.
