tomos weak spark

So here's the skinny:

I gotz me a tomos targa LX, I think from '95 or so.

The spark on it is quite weak. It exists, but it's weak as all hell. I had a spark checker light on it and it gave a weak little light. I pulled it open to the magneto.

NOW,

1: where the hell are the points? Are they farther towards the back of the bike?

2: is this just a case of a bad magneto? If so, is it just the main ignition magneto? Do I need to replace the lighting magneto as well?

I believe that the ignition coil (external coil) is still good. I tried switching in one from another bike with no improvement in spark.

So tell me what I can do for how cheap to get my baby running again. This is my very favorite beater and I want to get her back on the road again.

Thanks in advance,
