today I noticed oil running down the engine block on my 1965 wards squire 10. It's coming from the points plunger. I've watched zippo Vargas video on this subject and it's very helpful but I still have questions. Can the crank and cam stay in the engine? And where can I get a plunger, bushing, and the little boot needed to do this? Thanks!

I'll have to look. I know it's a 10 horse. Maybe a 23d. I'll check. So I can go to a briggs dealer?

If you have your engine numbers they should be able to help you locally, I also carry genuine briggs parts  if you cant find anything locally

It should be a 243341 B&S engine but who knows what may have been put in as a replacement over the past 50 years. Read the B&S Repairmans manual. There is a section on how to replace the bushing and plunger. There is also a seal kit that can be added on. I would try the seal kit first. Several of our sponsors can get them.  Try this guy  https://bolenspartsandsupplies.com/  (he posted above). Good Luck, Rick

 

I've found my local guys are more expensive than our sponsors.

So I may just need a seal as opposed to the bushing and plunger? I think it seems to be seeping pretty badly. Im no expert though.

When you get a chance to read the model number I can let you know the options available for your engine.
