Just picked p an old AMF 8/36 lawn tractor that did not run when I got it. the engine was stuck because the coil rusted to the fly wheel and it had a lot of other little issues.  I ended up throwing a solid state coil on it to replace the old points style and it started right up with no carb work done.  This tractor looks like it sat at the bottom of a lake for a long time, but its really neat cause it got a cigarette lighter. does anyone have more info on these machines

It is possible that this is essentially the same tractor as a Massey 8.  Pictures would help with IDing it.  Was the engine a Tecumseh?
