1978 skidoo olimpic no spark

I have a 1978 skidoo olimpic 340
I was driving it when it just died. We pulled the pull cord over 100 times and it started up but it was only running on 1 cylinder. We drove it home on 1 cylinder and about a week later we put new spark plugs in it we put them in and had to much spark like almost flames comeing out of the spark plug. Then after about 20 pulls there was absolutely no spark comeing from ether plug
Can someone please tell me what could be wrong

Sounds like something happened to the ignition system. Coil got weak, points condenser need replacing.
