Is it as simple as upgrading to a new magneto style coil pack and snipping the wire to the condenser behind the flywheel? Or am I stuck getting an original style unit and pulling the flywheel to get to the condenser?

thats the way I understand it as long as the magnetron is available for your model. I have asked the same question of a couple local techs in my area.

One would imagine it would work. Just wasn't sure if the magnets in the flywheel were different strength.

The way I understand it, if its a single magnet flywheel there isn't a problem. If it is a 2 magnet flywheel the polarity of the magnetism needs to be reversed. At one tme, briggs woould do this in house for the cost of shipping. Not sure if it stil applies or not. What model engine are yu working on?

Not exactly sure the model. Where can I find this? I believe it's between a 5-7hp 70's vintage biggs horizontal shaft.

Check the top of the sheet metal pull start cover. check the picture below
I put a red arrow pointing to where the numbers should be.
Thats where mine is. I was able to shine a flash light in from the side by
air cleaner while looking down through the small gap between the
hood and steering wheel mount.
