That is a nice find, i would leave it as it is so much of the original paint is in good shape, the muffler is not original but a New old stock tube muffler can be had, i found 2 in a tiny general store yesterday,

Great original condition David Bradley. If it works and you're happy with it, I wouldn't change a thing, not even the muffler. But please, put a shroud on that engine.

I just have the shroud off so i can pull the flywheel,and when i did the flywheel had a little crack about 3/4 of an inch beside the magnet.Could that cause a no spark issue? also the key looked a tad worn and a very slight bend

More then likely yes, sounds like another flywheel is in order, magnet could come out and hit the armature and snap it off along with the coil, speaking of coils looks like that one is new,

Yes, that is a new coil points and condensor,they were changed thinking that was the problem but i am pretty sure i have to hunt down a flywheel.I still have the original ones though.

that's good, hang on to them, those coils are better then what the bigger models got such as the 14 or 19, while your at it, check for play in the crank and connecting rod, a crack in the flywheel is not good for the engine internally, have you cleaned the carb ?,
those old model 6 are built to last,
