Thumb igniton - Sounds like a bad Condensor

I have seen this type in problem in an old point ignition car specalation was blown head gasket, bad cam
turned out to be a bad condensor causes all kind of misfiring points do not break clean leaves a spark traveling across the point. Condensor is there to make the spark take the least path of resistance and clean break on the points- no arc.
