Looking at the second pic, this thing must be homemade. I'd guess in the 1950s-80s? Modern points and hex cap screws everywhere.

Is there a club or person in the Milwaukee area that may help in getting this old motor going again. As I can use some direction on the wiring on this one it has points a condenser and what apeers to be a coil off a small engine going to a NGK CM 6 plug.
Thx Rick

Is the coil mounted over/under/next to a rotating engine part? That would be a magneto coil and should make spark on its own. The rotating part should have a magnet embedded in it somewhere. If the coil is away from any rotating parts, then it would use a battery to power the coil.

Pictures of this area would help.

No rotating parts it is a battery setup using a condenser points and a mower coil and a on off switch

Thx

looks like it was made from maybe a model hit and miss hit and miss model. The front end looks like looks like it has a few linkages from model airplanes but the rest looks pretty home made. The water pump also looks like the pump section of a 12 volt model airplane fuel pump.
