Points removal from 1972 briggs

Recommended Posts

lbuttke
How do I remove the points from my 1972 briggs & stratton 10 hp/ Is in a Homelite T-10 and has no spark. I got the condencer off but can not figure out how to remove the points. This motor was running 2 weeks ago, but after sitting out in the rain over memorial day weekend it will not fire up, I check and replaced the spark plug and condencer and still have no spark to the plug.

This diagram shows the points and the removal screws. You will also have to unscrew the adjustment screw. This screw will remain attached to the points.

I just replaced a set. Be aware that in addition to removing the upper and lower mounting screws shown in the picture posted by UCD, you must also remove the breaker point adjustment screw. Made that mistake myself. Took off the two mounting screws, but the points still would not come off. You will need to release the locking nut with a small wrench before the screw can be removed.

Thanks for the info on how to remove the points. I too removed the upper and lower screws but the points would not move, so I knew something else had to be done, but did not know what. Thanks again for the info.

Sorry, that cold medicine must be getting to me. :)

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
