It's good to hear that your motor is, at the very least, not frozen. Since you can get the motor spinning you can check whether or not you get a spark. Remove the spark plug attach it to the spark plug boot in normal fashion and allow the threaded portion of the spark plug to touch the motor... you're just grounding it so you could verify that it sparks. If possible use a known good spark plug. If you do not get a spark, use a file to clean the two little contacts on the "points". Although a set of points may look clean, bright and shiny they could have glazed over and not making contact so the condensor isn't getting charged.
