I don't readily know this John, but link seems a competent approach https://www.hunker.com/12226169/how-to-test-a-condenser-in-a-small-engine and may help you.

If the points are at maximum gap it may affect the misfire as minimal gap in specification will increase the dwell and give best chance of coil saturation at highest rpm, may be worthwhile trying first to see what effect it may have.

Same with plugs regarding gap too.
