make sure the part of the points that rubs on the cam, and the points are closed when you are opposite the lobe. turn motor over so the lobe is at it's highest point, and pushes the points apart. set your gap. turn motor over again, watching the rub block of the points, is it following the lobe? the points plate can be set so it never follows the lobe, or just touches the lobe at it's widest point, and that just ain't gonna do jack shit. sounds to me like you adjusted the points plate wrong. look again closely at how it works.
