1. The most likely is burned points which usually also means the condenser is shot
2. Maybe the points aren't opening (the rubbing block is worn or they just need readjustment)
3. No power to the coil
4. The coil is shot

With ignition key on switched to battery have you 6V (12V) to the coil?
No = suspect ignition switch or wiring from it to coil
Yes = check wire from coil (-) to distributor and points.

Any good quality condenser made for a points distributor will work fine. The part to remember is GOOD QUALITY. The Texas T Parts coils and condensers are known to last very briefly in service. You should try to find a German or US made Bosch coil and points / condenser set for 1968 - 1972 (12 volts) or 1958-67 VW (6 Volts) Volksbuggen if you want to go more than a few dozen miles.

Do not buy any coils made in China or Mexico, they are no Bueno por caca.
