has this been rewired? The ignition button sounds like a kill switch but wired backwards. The wires going into the shroud should go to the mag. Pushing the kill switch will ground out the mag, causing no spark at the points.
I'd wondered about that button myself but figured it was a way to get extra voltage across the points for starting. It's awkward to push two buttons though so a kill switch makes sense. There's no keyed ignition switch either which seems unusual.
In the picture of the dash the start button below the steering column engages the starter. The "kill" switch, if that's what it's meant to be, is below the ammeter.

If you want to go back with a key switch, you could use the Briggs & Stratton (part #392833) replacement for the original. Here's a couple of links that I found for that switch:
