i have never seen this setup before. the engine came off a david bradley walk behind. i am looking for the year?, bore, stroke , & crankpin specs. also with the coil off the engine is there a way to see if its good. i cant seem to get spark. the coil sitting on top is held on by clips. engine model # 500 202087 serial # 288208 [IMG]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/perry71/davidbradley001.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l226/perry71/davidbradley007.jpg[/IMG]

Looks like the old "magna matic" ignition system used on model 9-14-19 and 23 engines. Probably have to neasure bore to identify the engine. Brent

The 500 is the sears number for Briggs & Stratton engine. Looking at the second picture of the coil....see the splits in the coil. The coil might be no good. Do you have a picture of the carb and cylinder head? Karl

That is an old style "Maga-Matic" ignition system. I had one on a model 23 engine last year. I think I still have the coil and I think it was good. The front bearing went out causing the magnet rotor to be eaten away but I think my coil was OK. I think this was the biggest difference between the 23 and the 23d engines was this type of ignition or the style we are used to on the 243431 series engines.
