Default 2 cylinder horizontal opposed Briggs ? engine

this engine is on a 4.5 KW Generac generator from around 1978-80, the CDI module quit sending fire to the ign coil, I have trigger signal and power to the module when the engine cranks, it's on a 6 pin plug mounted on the back of the control box

i'm wondering about replacing it with something from another Briggs or similar engine

ign power measure 20 vac when cranking, but i have 12v DC available if needed

i have the service manual and drawings for the generator, including the engine but generac no longer supplies repair parts for this model

It might be a defective low oil detection unit. I'm going to copy this thread over to the generator board where it might pick up more responses.
