I did not take the cover off the points box but there is a wire going to it and the cover is sealed. I didn't want to break the seal just to see what was in there as it is a running engine. So if it don't have points - why is that wire there and what does it do ? ? ?
To solve the problem - the engine had been apart or at least the flywheel has been off. The female terminal that goes to the tab on the mag was along side the tab instead on on it. Put it on and it works. 3 hours work just to put a wire on a terminal that somebody forgot. Could not have been put on as there were wire ties holding the two plug wires and the kill wire together. No way it could have worked off. Any way - problem solved. Thanks for all the help and education. Still not sure if it has points or not but really don't care as long as it keep running.
To add to the confusion, when I put a test light connected to the stud and to ground, it will read continuity but when the flywheel is turned just a little the continuity goes away. Acts just like points, when they are closed the circuit is grounded. When the points are open, no ground.
