Hi guys,
I'm new to these Briggs engines. The model on it is the 6R6 model. After finding the spark plug for it, I found that it has 0 spark. After taking the cover off, I see the SP wire has been replaced. I cleaned the magnets on the flywheel and on the magneto, still nothing.

I did notice the SP wire coming from the magneto was just wrapped around the magneto stud.

I tried another wire touching the magneto to the spark plug and still got nothing.

Just looking for a few ideas or tips to try and get her running again. Thanks!

Silly question, but where would those be located?

Yup, gotta pull the flywheel (PB Blaster & a good wheel puller is my suggestion) and you'll see the points and condenser. Really not a bad job once you get the wheel off they can be very stubborn. Sandpaper will clean them easily without damage. There's gotta be 20 videos on youtube on how to do it, that's actually where I figured it out a while back. The Dr is right, it's prob your problem and best bet to make sure theyr clean of debris and buildup anyway. Good luck

Thanks. Was a battle to get off, that nut is on there tight. Just didn't budge. I bought this for a fun project, then pulled my back today working on it. I put it up for sale cheap on here, hoping someone else can enjoy it like I wanted too.
