Help With 5hp Briggs

Model 130202 Type 0135-01 ...It has no spark. I was all set to simply order an (coil/armature). When I stated to take it off I notice a wire running from
the coil back into the motor housing? What is that? Of course there is the wire running up to the spark plug. And there is a ground wire with loop end that fits under one of the two bolts that mt. the armature. I would have
to pull the flywheel to get to where this other wires goes to.

You've got a points ign system..
3 choices...
1)...Remove the flywheel and clean the points
2)...Cut the wire going to the points and install a CDI...
3)...Remove the coil and install a newer style magnetron coil from any pushmower engine that doesn't have points..

#3 is the easiest and fool proof way to repair.....Just cut the wire going behind the flywheel and let-r-rip.....

I would like to try one shot at cleaning those points. To get at flywheel I have to get that recoil clutch assm off. Do I turn that CCW to get if off?
And what is the trick for holding a flywheel, don't want to break any fins off?

Well, your choices are still pretty much the same this time around...

Clean points again knowing they will need need cleaning/replacement at some point. Or replace points and condenser.
B&S Part Number 294628

Or

Install a "Magnetron" kit onto your existing coil leaving the old points in place. They are just left in place to keep the plunger in place from leaking oil.
B&S Part Number 394970 (see picture).

Or

Replace your points style coil to the current version with the "Magnetron" built into the coil as mentioned prior.
B&S Part Number 397358 (see picture).
