351 wouldn't start, no fire- easy fix

My '90 TriStar, 351, old school ignition, would only crank, would not fire.

I replaced coil- no change. Cleaned up rotor button, distributor and points- no change.

I replaced the points (set at .018) and condensor and it fired right up.

It all had like a white dust all over so I'm guessing humidity got to it? I dunno.

But man is my wife happy now!
