Default Maytag Model 82 - New Owner

Hey there everyone. Just picked up a gem of a model 82 and it is my first Maytag engine and really my first antique engine. I have been doing a lot of reading on these the past 48hrs and I think I got a good deal on it at $80. Anyhow, before I put fuel in and try to run this old girl I want to be sure it is ready to be run and I wont wreck anything by trying to fire it. What's obvious to me is that I'll need to go through the ignition system and clean that up. I should probably inspect the carb and clean that out. Other than that am I missing anything? I did find a manual online so I can check my points and it looks like they should be gapped to .020". Thanks for the help.

Points .020. Plug .025. Ggas - 16:1 SAE 30 or TCW-3 OIL ONLY - no synthetics, one mix or different ratios. DO NOT remove the coil or you will need to send it out to be recalibrated! The ignition system is similar to the 92, but there are differences.

Good to know. All I have done is pull the plug and check spark but as one can imagine, I didn't have any. So I am going to give it all a good cleaning and see what happens next.

That engine would be a bargain at THREE times what you paid for it!
