I have a Briggs & Stratton tiller motor 5hp that does not have points.there are two wires terminated to the coil.1 with a ring terminal and 1 with a stripped end.Where do they go?

the wire with the ring terminal will go under a mounting bolt ( ground) the other will connect to the plate at the end of the throttle cable under the insulated bit
when you push the throttle to stop , that plate will short out the wire with the stripped end and top the engine

4hp briggs and stratton roto tiller motor will not engage when pulling the rope

There are 3 metal arms that come out when the recoil is pulled. These arms can get dirty or rust and stick in so the recoil won't engage the flywheel or crank. .You will need to pull off the recoil and lubricate and work back and forth the arms.

Briggs and stratton model #917388520 6.5hp bought from sears, primer bulb wont push gas into carberator, when it does starts for 5 sec then stops

It sounds like it is getting primed but not getting any fuel after the prime. It sounds like a dirty carb but if it is new that doesn't seem possible. Did it have gas or oil in it when you purchased it. I would return it to Sears if possible as you shouldn't have to deal with this on a new mower. Hope this helps. If not, please provide more info and we'll go from there.
