If it has points, then I would change the points and condensor first. Second, plug wires; and third coil.
Good luck.

Dump the points and see if you can retrofit a new breakerless ignition module.

Keep the points, old points systems work just fine, just a little more maintenance. Be sure to UNHOOK any killwires leading to the magneto and then try to start it before you replace anything.
Also make sure that there is only a small gap between the flywheel magnets and the magneto, and sand the magnets and magneto, they can get awful rusty.

I have ressurected (spelling?) many old Briggs engines.

Post the engine's model numbers and I will tell you if your
engine even has points and where to go from there.
