Electrical Nightmares

Currently I am having a less than stellar time trying to figure out what seems to be causing my spark plug to not produce a spark.

Things I know:

*When I pedal and try to start it hooked up to a voltmeter measuring in AC it is a steady 8+ Volts

*The Horn works fine and so does the headlight of coarse while pedaling

*I have cleaned the points to no avail

*have a new spark plug but isn't gapped*

Could it be in issue with the back tailight/running light that make it won't produce a spark? But I am pretty sure that they are not even on the same circuit.

Does the timing/Gap have to be perfect as well for it to produce a spark

How do I check with a multimeter, to see where this electrical gremlin is coming from?

Any help is much appreciated.
