Ignition system uncertainty

After moving up to school for the year, my moped has stopped working. Before I left I was messing with the carburetor trying to get it to stop leaking. I was able to do so by decreasing the amount of play between a brand new float and the float pin. Success. I took it for a few laps around my driveway before tying it up in the trailer along with a fridge and some chairs. It was running and responding to throttle fine. Now it won’t run for more than a few seconds IF that. Checked the spark and it isn’t as blue as I remember. If I need to start replacing ignition stuff, how do I know what is bad? Are there different symptoms for different gone-bad components? I.e. bad ignition coil vs. points vs. condenser. Thanks!
