I have the mag back on the bench. Gonna pull the points back out and do as you say. Just as well try the simple stuff first. The owner's manual says to file to a slight point too. Lots of good suggestions from you guys.
On a side note, this Regular is on rubber with 28" rims. The tires aren't good at all so I got some new ones. I have a new tire changer bought from a dealer who claims to know about big wagon tires and changers so this changer is one he recommended for the bigger tougher tires. Thought I'd see of the bead breaker on the new changer would break the beads on these old tires so I rolled one up to the changer and by golly it did the job. It struggled and didn't do it on the first push but after I'd rotateded the tire a little bit four times it pushed the bead in. A pound of rust fell out of it. Getting the tire off the rim still has to be done the old fashioned way but at least I didn't have to beat my brains out breaking the bead. Jim
