Recommended Posts

I want to replace my breaker point coil with a briggs magnetron coil. Does anyone know what the magnetron coil part number is? I will be replacing the stock #298968 coil and points/condenser? My engine is a B&S Model 170700 series 1969 7 hp vertical shaft. Thanks

You may need to have the flywheel repolarized. You would have to send it to Briggs to have that done. It would be less of a head ache to just replace the points with a Nova II electronic ignition module.

I have put magnetrons on several of the 7 and 8 hp vertical engines without reploarizing the flywheel and had good results, these were old engines from the 60's.

Clarification: Only the Briggs cast iron singles built before 7/31/81 (9-16HP, 23xxx-32xxx)models had this flywheel magnet polarity issue. None of the L-head vertical singles with points & 2-leg coils had this concern. The PN for the Magnatron conversion (add-on module) is 394970 and is much cheaper than buying the complete Magnatron coil assy. Tom (PK)

I have to replace my coil due to a rodent removing all of the spark plug wire insulation. So I am looking for the complete Magnatron coil assy part number. I want to eliminate the points and replace the coil. Thanks
