You most likely will want to service the points anyway. To get to them, the recoil assembly will need to be removed. There are three bolts that attach the recoil to the power head. The rear bolt goes into the block, the port side is the pivot bolt that hold the throttle lever. There will be a flat washer between the black plastic throttle lever. The other side will slip down as you loosen it. Very simple. As was posted, the rope is held into the handle by a "tortious path" through a metal insert in the handle. You can simply pull the rope out, tie a know in it to prevent it from recoiling back and then have slack to remove the rope from the handle. Then thread it through the top cowl. Then the flywheel will need to be removed as would be a normal procedure. The points are hard to find and expensive, so unless they are not able to be cleaned up, don't try to replace them.
Clean points are needed for good spark, these coils are usually good, but replacements can be found.
Sorry I didn't post earlier.
EDIT: Sorry, forgot to mention, those surface gap plugs are not for this motor. I use Autolite 303. or NGK B6S
