Seeking advice on engine tune up

I have a Simplicity 3414s lawn tractor. This machine has a 14 HP Briggs & Stranton engine. I have performed tune ups on cars in the past but I have never changed the points and condenser on a small engine. The manuals for this tractor don't provide any information. Can someone point me to a book or web site that gives instructions on the process? Thanks in advance.

Hello gsharpe, here is a link to B&S help on maintainance http://www.briggsandstratton.com/Mai...b&MSCSSID=1234

Here are a couple of Amazon.com books. General 4 cycle http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...291112-6716632

If you have 14 HP Overhead Valve http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...291112-6716632

I have seen these Amazon books and they are very good.

Sorry you will have to paste these links but they should help. Unless you have a very old Briggs you will have a Magnatron electronic ignition so no points etc......Mike
