I think you mat have "primary" and "secondary" a little confused as the seconday is where the high voltage is generated and the primary is the 12 volt side. That said, if there is voltage to the coil then the points have to open/close to force the voltage change to make the secondary generate the high voltage. It might be that the points are not opening/closing and the best way to see this is with the cap off and cranking the engine. Could also be a bad rotor or bad cap but if you have the end of the wire from the coil then I'd guess the points. Good luck.
