I have a question...maybe be a simple one to answer, but as I don't have all that much experience with the small engines, it would be good to have your expert advise.
I have a briggs 10hp on an Allis B-10. It ran fine after I put new points, a new plug, ignition coil, starter switch and cleaned the carburetor. I went to start it the other day and it would not fire. Took the cover off the points to check for spark, and noticed that the plunger was not moving in and out. I tried adjusting the gap, in case it was moving but I could just not se it plainly. No luck there. Would the plunger have gotten bent inside the block or something else got broke inside. I should have taken off the points to see if the plunger would pull all the way out since it has to be put in from the inside. Wouldn't be a problem with the cam would it?
I guess that any help would be grateful. Just wondering how much time and money I may have to put into it. Thank you in advance for any help and sorry for being so 'windy' in my explanation.
