Default 1940 sears handiman r/t

hey im new to smokstak names Ken i am having some problems locating a set of points for my briggs and stratton model z engine on my 1940 sears handiman r/t tractor. when i received the tractor the motor had been rebuilt but the previous owner never got it running after the rebuild. so i tried and tried then i tested the coil and it was bad. so i found one on ebay and purchased it. i figured while the flywheel is off i would just replace the points and condenser too. the points on the engine are dished in so they dont have the best contact. if anybody knows where i can find a set for this engine it would be helpful. thanks alot.

Hi welcome to the stak. I do not know which points your engine takes. Do they have any marks or numbers on them. A lot of points are still available at parts houses. Bill K
