I traced that anoying skip on my 64 landlord to those dam points. There seems to be an arc coming from the screw that adjusts the gap on my points, whenever you see the arc the rpm's drop. the points are less than 3 months old.Is there Any way I can stop this arcing so I can fix this thing before we get snow tomorrow. There saying 6-12" in central CT. (they have been wrong before). thanks, Rich P

Points of today are woefully lacking the quality of years ago!I suggest going to a NAPA auto store and buying their breakerless ign box for around $20 bucks,for the single cyl. briggs. It eliminates the "Damn points", and isn't affected by moisture either.You just simply mount this little box near the breaker box and re-rout the wires to it and that's it!No more skipping! good luck! dlc

You may have some kind of bad insulator or some kind of film causing conduction - try removing them and cleaning everything well before reassembly or try returning them for a refund and try another set. If you greased the pivot - don't - it is not needed and can be also be your problem.

I agree with DLC and put in the breakerless ignition box. I had the same kind of problem and changed over. It only took about 20 minutes and I picked them up at my local lawn mower shop for about $13. KS

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
