I am in need of a starting magneto for the Tecumseh 10 hp engine. I bolts right on the side of the block sort of behind the flywheel. They are discontinued through Tecumseh and I can't seem to find one anywhere. Does anyone know where to look for this part?

Is it a magneto or an SSI module?

If you do find one they bring big money.There is a chrysler ignition set up on engines and magnets .com. If your engine has point it would be easier to put on a 12v coil and switch it to battery ignition.

I guess you would call it an SSI module or "solid state ignition". I do have battery ignition already I think all this item does is deliver spark while the engine is running.

A picture of what you have will answer a lot of questions and end supposition.
Take a picture of the module/SSI/mag that you need and maybe a couple of others and then one of our site sponsors can help or there are other options as well.

I can't find the bag I had with tech parts place address on it, but what is left of them is in Janesville, WI.  If was on later engines, would think they might have it in stock. Anyone have that address here?  OR, epay and swapmeets, checking for dealers with old stock and such things.  Check dealers on here, they are always buying up old stock from closing dealers. You sure that isn't one of those computers for the safety switches and controls that many newer rigs have now?  If they go bad, whole tractor is dead and won't run. Might check with the brand dealer and see what they say it is.  Doesn't seem right that magneto would be on outside of the engine is why I'm saying this.

If it's battery, then we really need to see a pic to help ya determine what you need. There are so many modded ignitions out there now.

If it's a SSi module it's not going to be battery ignition. If the SSi module gets power its going to get fried. Battery ignition is an automotive type coil
