As I have posted before, I recently inherited my great uncles 1964 simplicity landlord. I am a complete novice to the garden tractor world so any help will be greatly appreciated. I put a new battery in yesterday and I dont seem to be getting any spark. What should I check first and is there any good reference material I could purchase to help my project along?

LHX2, I would pull the spark plug and see if you have spark at the plug. If no spark, see if you have 12vts at the coil. Also check and clean the points.

I think that would have the Briggs engine it it. If so, best clean the points first. If it's the magneto system with points (original) it wont have the normal "12v" anywhere on the spark system.

A big problem I ran into on my Allis (similar Tractor), you have to pull the engine to get to the magneto. Brilliant design there. My no spark problem was a corroded wire to ground from the mag.
