Once i place the carb and manifold on I will also replace the fuel filter since it's a cheap part and seems to always be an issue.
I'm not sure of what might work on your motor, but I'd use some sort of electronic ignition and skip the points if it was me. Yep, replace the fule filter so that you can rule it out and chances are it needs to be replace anyway. Like somebody else mentioned, it may be the "bag" filter on the end of your fuel pick-up inside of your tanks that is clogged.
