Took the engine off and took it down to the flywheel and inspected the key, which was in perfect condition, even the Briggs logo stamped into the side looked new. So it isn't that and the gap on the magneto looks good still, going todoublebcheck it though. The magnet is fine, still as clean as the day I cleaned it up for the new magneto. It isn't perfectly clean but I didn't want o risk degagnetizing it. So I have checking it all, and the E3 plugs are staying, it isn't those, they are making spark. I don't know what is wrong with the engine, but ready to give up on it and buy a new Briggs Vanguard to swap in to the tractor.
