There's the CDI box and a CDI stator. you gotta have both. kinda sounds like you've got a CDI box and trying to figure out how to attach it to an old '76 points stator. that doesn't work.

most of those a35 era Tomos CDI's have 2 wires. black goes to the CDI box/ignition coil for spark, yellow is lights.

If you wanna salvage the points ignition, clean them diligently and set the gap, then set timing so they juuuuust being to open 15-25 degrees BTDC (I usually run in the 15-20 range) you'll need a external HT coil like the universal coil off treats, the points wont work with the CDI box coils.
