Default john deere igniter adjusting point gap

I have a John Deere 1 1/2 hp hit and miss engine that is ready to run except the points don't open 1/32nd inch when I hand trip the anvil. Does this sound like a worn part on the igniter? I need some help. Thanks

If you push the anvil opposite the way the trip lever pushes it the points should open a good bit, like 3/16" or something along those lines. I don't' have one in front of me at the moment. If something "hits" before they open much then either it is put together wrong or there is wear as stated. If they do open that much then either there is too much friction on the moving parts from rust or such or the torsion spring may be weak.

Thanks McDonald I replaced the old anvil with a new one which is adjustable and now the points work. nita 200
