OK! jumped to soon. I took the cover off the stop switch and found points and condenser. When I started to take the doohickey off the crankshaft it grabbed the wrench. So the doohickey is a magnet. The points were black so I cleaned them with a tooth brush and alcohol. They cleaned up real good and looked almost new. I shut down the shop until tomorrow. I will then check for shorts and see if the coil is grounded out or open. The coil is one that is inside of a molded plastic cover and does not look like it ever got extra warm or wet. I am thinking now that the points was the reason I didn't get spark to the plug. I could only get an .080 feeler down between the piston and cylinder wall to the first ring. I will put it back together if I don't find any shorts or open coils in the coil or condenser and see if I have spark to the plug before I pull the piston out. If I a missing something at this point I sure would like to here it.
