From the video you posted above it seems like your on the right track...she runs!

 

What running problems are you having?

At the tractor show they was thinking the ignition module was the cause so I was going to install the points back but the rod is broke. 

My plan is to replace the ignition module and carb (I still got a feeling the carb is some of the issue). One of these day I will tear it down and replace the point rod.

I had the same problem with my 16Hp briggs on my Mtd990. Very little spark due to a bent points pushrod. The bent rod messed my cam lobe up so instead of tearing a good running engine down I converted it to a Nova II electronic ignition module. Less than $15. & about 20 minutes to install...nice hot blue spark then. Check out my thread at post #60, 63, & 70. Hope this helps.

I already have one on there and it has worked great but maybe the gas leaking on it ruined it. I still think it more of a carb issue just can't afford to replace it right now.

It was a leak around the intake that seemed to cause the bogging down it got plenty of power now

I used plastic dip paint on the foot rests and paint all the knobs. Pictures coming in the morning.

I got to start back on this headache again. It still bogs down really bad.
