My JD 214 is getting no spark at the plug, so while turning engine over I noticed breaker points were not opening. Guess it's that little plunger pin thing. So how do I remove and replace it? I just hope the lobe on the cam isn't wore or grooved down.

Once the points are removed the pin should pull right out

The pin used to be made of steel. The new ones are aluminum. If at all possible find one of the steel ones.

If the plunger isn't moving in and out the cam may be FUBAR..

If possible, i would pull the points off, hold pressure against the pin with your finger and turn the engine over by hand,  Should you let if know if the cam moves at all, and and will let you feel if anything unsavory is going on inside.  I suggest using a the flywheel nut or the pto end bolt, if you turn it by the flywheel itself, it might hide a broken flywheel key.
