I am looking for a magneto for my grandpa. He is over 80 so he is not much for computers. He has a sears lawn tractor but the magneto has become grounded out. Again the part number is 610748. I have been searching but unable to find one for him so I came here to the experts.

610748 is a solid state ignition unit.  I don't mean to burst the bubble, but I sell them fast at $175 when I find them.  That's about where you will need to be to get it replaced.

 

Are you sure yours is toast?  Did you disconnect the ground wire completely and see if you get a spark then?  Do you have a good spark plug?  I've been known to replace the boots/connectors and sometimes that fixes the problem.

There are other more modern upgrades to the old SSI module ( not a magneto)  igntion for much cheaper, but your grandpa is still looking at $100-150 for new parts.

The cheapest upgrade is Ed stoller's system on the engines and magnets website  posted above. You can pickup his homemade trigger for about $35-40 shipped, then grab as Chrysler control module , and coil at local auto store for about $25 each. Follow Ed's directions and you can have it running. This does convert it to a battery-coil igntion so tractor really needs a good charging system.

Ed's buddy Mike on his website also sells a complete kit for about $139 shipped or around that.

 

You can also check out Dale Colvert at  http://overnight-solutions.com/ for a drop in, modern upgraded replacement. it runs around $150 I think.

 

I also have converted one using a different type of pickup and magnets in flywheel, bat that will run you close to $150 also.

 

I personally would stay away for the used Ebay used modules, I wouldn't spend $200 plus on a 40 yr old electronic part that may go out tormorrow when it can be upgraded to modern day parts.

 

 

I've done a conversion already on a 16Hp, will need one for my other 16 and probably my 12. Let me know if ya need some help, I can talk ya through it. Only one I'm not really familiar with is the overnight solutions, but another guy I know did it and it's pretty much a plug and play system.

I've been working on building my own trigger too using he old module with Ed's help.
