I would file the points and sand the magnets on the flywheel...

thanks to all that helped... i got it apart and replaced the points and condenser and set the gap and put it all back together and it still wouldn't start. then i turned the choke off and it started after about half a pull. so life is good and now i'm off to tinker with something else... and no i didn't trim the edges of the lawn... just wanted to make somthing run today!!:D thanks again!!!
