Bought this good looking 70 and it was suppose to be a great runner. Didn't have spark, found points burnt in two. Replaced points and condenser and still no spark. What are the points on a 7hp Tec. set at when fully open? Also found a chipped place on one of the magnets. About 1/4 gone. Will this stop it from running? Bob 765 426 0772
.020 is the point setting. You need to replace the flywheel because of the missing magnet. My guess because the points were badly burned someone put 12 volts to them and burned them up. He/she probably also burned up the coil. Roger
