I have a Wisconsin S-8D that has no spark. The coil doesn't have a condenser. Is this normal? What are the points to be set at?

The points should be set at approx .020". There should be a condenser next to the points. Has it ran before without? If so someone could have converted it to an electronic coil.

An S8D should be a magneto ignition,if it has a coil,someone converted it,there should be points and condensor in the box under the carb,if it has a coil,it should use a coil without an external resistor.If there isn't a condensor and it ran like that someone must have changed it to electronic ignition like mentioned.
