others have told you about seal issues. The blue wire that is below condenser is also to be soldered to condenser, it's coming from points.

There is no drain on the crankcase. When you replace the seal, lay the bike on its side with the old seal out and most of the excess fuel should drain.

If the obvious bad wiring is new and isn't the issue, your "clean" points almost certainly got drenched in fuel and oil the way it's gushing out of that seal and points don't work good wet.

You might consider sending your ignition to DEET once you get it off... he will fix it up and make sure it has spark. Most ones you'll find are going to look a lot worse than yours... "new" is likely impossible to find.

For the drilled screws, now get a set of left handed drill bits. One a bit smaller than the one you were using should eventually catch and back those broken screws out. Works better than easy outs.

All I did for the first try when I drilled the top out was turn the drilled screw with my finger and It came out i was verry surprised so did the other

Looks like someone made a seal adapter. I wonder if seal they used is a proper dual lip crank seal?
