Didn’t know it had points thought it had a magneto idk though the engine is 30 years old.
have you checked the valve gap? it could be possible that the valves are worn and the gap is too large or too smal). ( check the gap with a feller gauge it should be less than .009, but more than .003)I have taken both the pull start covers off and both the motors have magnetos, no points. Maybe you were thinking about an earlier model briggs? I personally think the screw on the bottom of the carb just needs adjusted also the motor needs an oil change. Well I'll need a new chain and tires if I want the bike to be in good shape. It's fun to ride around on it but the other day the chain came off and I thought I could take a link off but the chain wouldn't fit.
