No it does not have points, it will have a full cdi unit adjacent to the flywheel, you will have to lift the engine blowe housing off to get to it.

My generator will not start I don't think I am getting a spark?

To check the spark you need to remove the spark plug. Then reattach the plug wire to the plug. Next, ground the plug to the engine. Finally, pull the start cable and check for spark. Remember not to pull the starter without the plug being grounded or you can ruin the ignition module.

Murray riding mower won't starter, new solenoid, new spark plug and trying start it from the start turn over but won't start and try from the solenoid still no go.

You need to pull the spark plug out, connect the spark plug wire and ground the plug to the motor and see if you have spark. If you have spark (bright blue) then it is a fuel problem. A yellow spark is and indicator of a coil issue.

I have a Craftsman, 6.75hp, SP, model #917.377580 lawn mower. Was running good but, won't start any more. Don't know if or where the fuel filter would be. Thinking it might be the solid state...

If you know that you have a good plug, and you don't have spark at the plug, then it is a bad Ignition Coil (Module). If you need further help, let me know.

Good Luck!

What size spark plug do I need for my craftsman 550 lawn mower? It tries to start but won't turn over so I think that could be the problem

I don't believe your problem to be with your spark plug. Did you hit anything with your blade before this problem started? If so your problem is with your timing.
You will have to check your shear key. Remove the top cover to your engine and any attachments. Remove your flywheel, and you will see the shear key between the flywheel and the top of the engine crankshaft. If the shear key is even slightly dented replace it . This is what is causing your problem. You will be up and running soon. GOOD LUCK.
