Yes, I made sure my points were clean, my flywheel key was new and I did have the correct replacement parts. Today I pulled my motor off the tractor. I decided to go right to the heart of it and start from the begining. I pulled the flywheel shroud off and decided to recheck the air gap between the armature and the flywheel. What I found was that the two legs of the armature are not at the same radius as the flywheel so they dont match up perfect. I gapped it again using a feeler guage and not the piece of paper Briggs gives you to use as a feeler guage. When I did this my spark was back so I started to put it back together again. I put my new points and condenser back in, put a new starter belt on and put the engine back on the tractor without bolting it on. At this point my son had to go to the doctors so I was done for the day. Hopefully tomorrow I will finish bolting the engine in and hear it run again.
