I had her fixed at last seasons end and she ran great. I tried to fire her up and got no spark. I cleaned the points and got spark. It cranks great and wants to fire but won't keep running. It gets gas to the carb. The distributor,cap,rotor,points,condensor,coil and plugs were new at season end and a replaced the plugs this year. I emptied the tank and refilled it with new gas. Someone told me it could be the shift asist module. Any more advice would be greatly appreciated.

Could be, try pulling a plug wire and ground it to the engine and see if it gets a hot spark while cranking the engine. Cool
