    No Start - New Ignition Switch

    Look at the side of the switch with the prongs, there should be a letter on or around each prong. Compare it with your old one. Improper switch can damage your ignition coil, so be careful.

    When did oil coming out the exhaust come into the discussion? The oil is likely from turning the engine on it's side to work on it. It will burn off after a while. Your running/starting problem is likely your engine's old points/condensor ignition, older folks know about things like this...
