b 112 elctronic ignition

Recommended Posts



have not been on for a while good to catch up.

my question is it possible to put a eltronic ignition on the tractor and eliminate the points all together. if so where to to get one and a parts number would be a lot of help. I also have 3 big ten parts tractors if some one is looking for parts. thanks for all of your help

There are a couple options.

Magnetron upgrade kit. From Briggs, P/N 398811. This involves pulling the engine and sending the flywheel off to Milwaukee, Wi. for repolarizing. This replaces the coil if it is bad.

Mega-Fire. These are available online. No engine removal needed. Old coil is used.

Automotive coil. I believe this still involves using the points and condenser. Others can chime in and give a more accurate description of their findings.

Points and a condenser are still available. Also, check the points plunger if setting the point gap is no longer possible should you go this route.

I had a Mega Fire on my 110 that lasted less than a year. Bought a Nova 2. We'll see how long that lasts. I think my Mega Fire was a dud, lot of guys here get along just great with them.
