Theres no metal transfer on the points but they are well worn an due for a change.My tractor dosent get used a much as it used to but I run it 2 or 3 times a week.Once the weather cools It will be working in the woods every day unless it rains.I do not neglect the tractor but take care of what it needs.Many of the problems with tractors are self inflicted by owners.If I go out today and the engine dosent start I will see that the ammeter sits on zero while cranking.There are two ways to fix it.First way, go to the store and buy new points,new condenser,new spark plugs, new wires, new coil,new ignition switch,new battery, new starter solenoid,new start switch,almost forgot Ill need a new rotor, new distributor cap and new voltage regulator.Change all these parts and hope it starts.Second way, go straight to the distributor and clean the points with a diamond paddle file.Tractor starts and I haul the load of brush to the burn pile. It was raining all week and I know my engine always shuts down with the points open.You can see this on the ammeter.No way to leave the key on on my 640.You can see a key left on by looking at the ammeter before you get off the seat.I expect the wet weather grew some fuzz on the points and insulated them.This reminds me of the fellow who saw a hole in his points and thought they were bad.
