what did you do with the little hole that this dick goes in to operate the points it would now be spraying oil out
I beg to differ I think points are better
coil kit conversion is 55 bucks. Not sure if that is all engines, but for a briggs model 19 it was that.
History of the Magnetron electronic ignition:When originally introduced in August 1981 it was at first available for these particular engine lines:Model Series 62030 "Sno/Gard" 2-Cycle EngineAll 92900, 93500, 110900 and 113900 series engines with "System 4" 6V electric starter (92907, 92987, 93507, 93587, 110907, 110987)All Industrial/Commercial (I/C) engine lines (model series 81230, 131230, 131430, 131920, 195430 and 221430; and cast-iron model series 233430, 243430 and 326430)All twin-cylinder engine lines (model series 401410, 401700, 402410, 402700, 421410, 421700, 422430 and 422700)
NOTE 1: This will not work on any engine built before December 31, 1962 (code 6212310).
NOTE 2: For cast-iron engines (model series 233400, 243430 and 326430; and former model series 19D, 23C, 23D, 193400, 200400, 300420, 301430, 302430, 320420 and 325430) built prior to August 1, 1981 (at code 8107310 or earlier) the original flywheel must be sent directly to B&S for repolarization to accept the Magnetron. Note further this will not apply to former models 19, 23, 23A, 191400 and 193400 as these were all built with the magneto underneath the flywheel.
Anyone else deciding to do this just cut the old wires from the old coil going to the points and that's it, no fuss, no fly wheel removal, done. The only wire going to the new coil is for the engine cut off.
dam good video… anyone with a brain can follow this.. thanks
I just did this conversion on a 1964 Toro Sportlawn with a 2hp briggs. It worked great. FYI, a brand new coil is only $25. So it's well worth it. I would put a note of that in your video….that $50 number probably scares people.
you can also buy an electric ignition module. Wire that up in to the points cover and you don't need to swap the coil =)
can u do this with points & condenser on b&s that r on the out side of the engine
what is the part # for that coil
Another option is shit can the cantankerous antique Briggs. side valve POS and buy a Harbor Freight "Preditor" overhead valve engine. $90. up. Been there, done that on mypressure washer. Chinese, and poorly balanced, but much better.
can i change a 1968 5hp briggs and stratton to electronic ignition
This was an excellent video. I had never worked on a small engine with a point setup like this before and my snow blower has one. I couldn't even figure out how to get the flywheel off until I watched this. Thank you.
I have a 91 model with the push down kill switch.. does that mean it is points in a 91?
So there is no moduale? It is all in the coil?
I have been Struggling to remove the starter clutch for some time now and didn't think that it would screw off, thank you kind sir for this valuable information, NOW I CAN GET TO THE DAMN POINTS!!!
Best to put the screws back into the clutch after removing the screen so the cover doesn't come off. All the balls come out and what a PITA to re-assemble. Not to mention with the screw in the hole can't collapse as you're hammering on it.
jesus, why not just attach a car starter, instead of taking everything apart like this
It's a waste of time to remove the old points & condenser, just cut the wire going to the condenser and install the electronic ignition coil.
great video I'm gonna replace the ignition on my 3hp Briggs with a newer coil and thumbs up for his noddleyness
