not bad, but has missed a crucial part of the system, namely the points or switch module without which you won't get a spark (..as you discovered)

points and condenser.  The condenser is needed to boost the spark with points

I did say with everyones help to begin with before i mentioned ChatGPT... i was just intrigued what AI would suggest, and to be fair it was pretty good. 
If anyone wants to update that bullet pointed list then feel free, seeing it all in one post rather than several replies may help others in the future.

To be fair,distributors seem to be made of magic components and fairy dust.To some people of a certain age they were everywhere and buying new parts was unaffordable to many.Minis were cheap daily drivers and always seemed to need attention.It was almost second nature to dry the dissy cap at regular intervals and file and adjust the points as they were almost completely at the end of their lives.There is nothing magical about early minis,just unfamiliar.Steve..

No where for a modern day obd 11 to be plugged in to tell the modern day parts fitter what to change..

A mechanic listens to the engine and can see what is going on..
