The Nova 2 replaces the points and condenser. If the problem is in either one, it will most likely cure it. If the problem is in the coil, it won't.

If he claims he replaced everything he must have it wired wrong or used the wrong parts
The original systems are readily available including coil points and condenser

Easiest way to find out if it will work is hold a Compass near the magnet.
The original points flywheel is N-S-N
The magnetron flywheel is S-N-S
Take a conventional compass and offer it to the center fin of the aluminum magnet carrier.
if north goes toward the magnet it is old points type and not suitable for magnetron or the Nova 2 module.
if south points to the magnet you should be magnetron ready and a Nova 2 module or Magnetron coil will work.
If your flywheel is Magnetron ready Instead of the Nova 2 module just get a Magnetron type coil.This coil will work if it is Magnetron ready and it's only $20 shipped.

Is could be the plunger I have heard off that at least one time. simple enough to replace. I would suggest to get the original system working it is a tried and true dependable system.

If it's too much trouble you can always swap in another 7.25hp briggs or the 8hp briggs. that way you don't have to cut anything
