Time for a Professional?

My 3415 has been sitting most of the summer after the governor spring broke and the tractor was revving real high. I fixed the spring and it would run for around 5-10 minutes and then die. I pushed it into the garage. (Think it may need the valves adjusted?) Now it has a weak to non-existent spark too. I've replaced the condensor and charged the battery. It turns over fine and still won't start. I tried to bring it to the local lawn equip. repair shop in RI and they said they wouldn't touch it. Any reccomendations for a nearby shop in Northern RI, N.West CT that still works on 30 year old Classics?

Have you cleaned or replaced the points or checked the points gap it should be set at .020. Nine times out of ten when there is no spark it seems that it is the points or at least that is what I have discoverd.

Also if the flywheel and coil has got damp and rust has started it wont work right.I would after cleaning the point and still have no spark check and clean the flywheel and coil.And if you still dont have spark then it may be the coil.The go from there.Just my 2 cents Tony

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
