With the distributer cap off, turn the engine over slowly (ign. on) and see if the points spark as each lobe of the distributer cam opens them. If not, the point gap may be set to close and one lobe is worn slightly (not making the spark) Reset points and try again. Ran into this problem on a friends Ferg. 20/85

Thanks for your suggestion, and I'll do that, but it appears to me that there is only one lobe on the distributor cam. Since there are two cylinders, this doesn't seem possible, but that's how it looks. The points only open once per revolution of the distributor cam. The motor was running fine a few days ago. I don't see how the lobe could have worn off. I'm really puzzled by this.

Its been a long time since i worked on one,but if you have a magneto then both plugs fire at the same time. The magneto turns at engine speed and has only one lobe.Maybe a bad cap or one side of the coil.
