So i just purchased a b-10 as part of a package deal for $20. For the most part she is all there, but she does have issues. It has the briggs motor. Now my problem being, when it turns over, the little rod that pushes the points does not move. What is involved in fixing this. I am assuming a tear down, but need a little guidance.

May just be stuck, see if you can get it to move with a tool. Noel

The points pin is replaceable without removing the engine but you may be able to free it up. Those old cast iron B&S engines are great. The B 10 is a great tractor too when everything is working right. I have three of them. Check our Manuals Section for the engine and the tractor . I with try to find the engine manual that you need. Our sponsor can get the parts you need. Good Luck, Rick

    Are you sure it is not moving ?  it wont mover very much in order to do the job.  otherwise I would say if it is freed up and still not moving than you have trouble with the cam and that will require a complete tear down.  really easy to work on and you will be really happy when you get it running.

Those points only go IN for a tiny moment, very hard to see the action when hand cranking and such. Have magnets on flywheel pass the coil and watch for spark at plug. Plug out all this time, you won't be able to turn very well with plug in. Make sure you are on the compression stroke too. Set points at .018 on old ones, not the .020 of the new specs. Don't forget, there is a lock-nut on that adjustment, have to loosen to adjust, and re-tighten to hold. Hold the setting with wrench or driver, it may move if you don't when tightening the lock-nut.

If your lobe is wore out you can remove your flywheel and send it to briggs and they will repolarize it for free. Then you can use a coil
