Pick up briggs part # 397358. it's an electronic coil for your engine, and no other parts are needed. I sell em' for $40.00, so you should pay somewhere in that area.

However... I still prefer point ignition for slow running engines, and easier starting as they do not require the rpm that an electronic coil does to make a spark, especially at cranking speeds.

Both of those wires you pulled out go to the same place, that being the condenser. They protrude through a hole in the condenser, and are held captive by a compression spring. If you want to repair what you have, remove the flywheel and breaker cover and reinstall the wires.
