Coil & Distributor Question

When I have my Dist. Cap off, should there be any sparks in the points? I am guessing not since the Coil is not connected at that point. I was getting an intermittant spark on 2 of the dist. plugs, but none from the other 4. I attempted to change the points, but the points that I bought were not exactly correct. Also, how do you adjust the points when putting new ones in? I have a new dist. cap on order and new plug wires. I have a new rotor, coil, and plugs. Is there anything else that anyone can think of that I might need to change in order to get consistant firing?

KOEO you will get sparking at the points if they are opened and closed regardless of what brand of car you are working on. Install the points, crank the engine and set dwell to Mfg specs for whatever brand of car you are working on. Tighten the hold down screw. Install the cap, fire up the car, and recheck dwell on the meter.
