And to add more to the scheme of things, that setup makes for a "Wasted Spark" scheme for the cylinder that is not coming up on compression.

Ok so the right coil is fine, I just swapped the blue/yellow to yellow and the coil fired, do the problem must be the black/white wire. How/where is that supposed to go, because, in the picture below is how they are, what's stopping the 1/2 coil from firing if both blk/white wires loop to the same wire if the blue/yellow and yellow are matched up properly?

Cleaned caps, all coils firing. Still don't start, not even on ether, with reasonable direction clockwise and counter clockwise or turning the breaker plate. Either backfires a lil attempting to start or just cranks over. What now?

Look at the color of the wires going in and out. They should match.

Awesome Dave0430

This thing might run yet. :)

The condenser is wired this way from the shop, this isn't something I've messed with since I got it back. Flip that yellow and blue around and it'll stop backfiring when attempting to start and actually run?

Don't worry about the wires from the condenser, they don't matter. It is the ones to the points that are wrong.

Like yellow and blue from the points?
What about that blue with a yellow tag on it? Is that supposed to be on that wire where my thumb is?

Can you do a thing where you circle which wires go where?
No I can't. Simply unplug the 2 wires with the woven insulation and switch places with them.
