When the battery ignition system became available it was offered as an upgrade for the older (magneto) systems. You can probably buy one by advertising on "THE VINE, Classified" forum. Just be sure you get ALL the parts. The points, condenser and distributor cap are the same and interchangable but the rotor and coil is not.farmergiffIV wrote:I am considering having an extra magneto on hand does anyone else carry a spare and fix them as you go a long?
I actually have a battery ignition system, but I have been working on getting it working smoothly, last winter I drove the tractor in to the shop to try and adjust the governor rockshaft..... Here is where I am at now, I've replaced the head gasket and reassembled everything and ever since I haven't gotten her to start up.
