I guess I'll have to take off the flywheel to see which one it is?

 

Its Magneto Ignition

Flywheel has to come off to get to it.

May just need a good cleaning on the contacts..

Do you have a puller?

That was painted by someone

The 800's had white hood & Rims with  Gold/Cream color on the body.

 

Here's a picture of what one looked like when it rolled out the factory

Okay, about getting the flywheel off, I'll borrow a puller from Autozone or so but how do I get the nut loose in the first place, I don't want to stick something in the flywheel rib cause I'm sure something will break.

You need to use an Impact Gun if you have or can rent one. It will back the nut off without doing anymore then just holding the flywheel with your other hand.
