So I was able to get some life back into it. Just fitted the plugs and wires a little better. Still barely runs with JUST the right amount of choke and throttle. Definitely dies the minute I let off the throttle.
I took a video of the points while turning over the engine. Thoughts on the different seen between the two points contacts?

1981 KZ305 CSR - 10k miles (didn't have the heart to customize this one, will stay original)
I am no expert in this area, but that spark coming from the front(?) set of points isn't right. In fact it's way bad. That much spark coming off theose points will definitely damage them. Have you done anything with the ignition circuit at all such as replace points and condensers? The point sets appear to look different to me but I can't tell for sure. I used to see a little bit of intermittent spark off the points, before installing the Dyna setup, but it was very small and hard to see.
It may not be an issue but in the video your points plate is out of adjustment range.
It's not centered in the slots.
You may have compensated for it with individual points adjustments.
You might double check you are firing on the "F" mark not the "T" mark.
That's kind of my thought too Matt, but looking at the points leads me to think they need to be replaced. The right side looks really corroded but there's so much spark flash I can't get a good look at the left. I don't think I have ever seen a set of points with this much spark flash. Wouldn't want to get my fingers close to it.
