Default 1920 Hercules Ignitor?

I have a 1920 Hercules 1 1/2 E that I am slowly getting back together to hopefully run once again. But as usual I have none of the ignition parts. I plan to just make up something on my own that will adapt to existing mounting points and what not as to not permanently alter it.. anyways.. didn't this engine originally come with an ignitor? cause it now has a plate bolted onto it with sparkplug in it.. if it is supposed to have ignitor.. where can I find one? I have looked around ebay and did google searches trying to find one with no such luck.. making an engine run with ignitor way easier then messing around with points..

There is a person who offers new, I think he said hand made ignitors, for sale regularly. Bill K

I think the original igniter was a 303 K-26, and the engine used a Webster TriPolar type AM (one magnet). You should be able to get the assembly from H&M Enterprises, but it won't be cheap!

Yeah, I am going to be making an ignition for it using High tension coil. cannot justify spending more on a mag/ignitor then I did for the engine and all of the other parts I have gotten for it so far.
