No spark in a Briggs & Stratton Model 243431 0123 Type 01 CC: 67100 61, in an Allis-Chalmers B-110 garden tractor. Can I convert that motor model to solid-state ignition? Would I need to get the flywheel re-polarized?

Welcome to the forum. My understanding is if it has 2 magnets on the flywheel it would have to be repolarized. If the coil is good, you could convert it with one of the electronic modules that eliminates points and condenser.

Welcome to GTT. Go to our Manuals Section and download the B&S manual for your engine. It should help. The points box on those engines will fill with oil, shorting out everything. You can replace the plunger and/or install a seal kit. One of our sponsors carries the parts. Good Luck, Rick

Actaully the new magnetron mags you don't need to repolarize. Zippo on YouTube shows a video with it installed

Welcome to the forum. My understanding is if it has 2 magnets on the flywheel it would have to be repolarized. If the coil is good, you could convert it with one of the electronic modules that eliminates points and condenser.

 

Can't use the multi magnet flywheels with a Magnetron coil or a Nova 2 or Mega-Fire module even if you have it repolerized. They fire Way Way to advanced. It will either instantly sheer the flywheel key or backfire through the carb with a big ole fireball.

 

Single magnet flywheels can be repolerized. If you have a Compass handy try this.

To determine whether or not your flywheel is magnetron ready, offer a compass to the center fin of the aluminum magnet carrier on the flywheel. If north points toward the flywheel, it has not been re-polarized and is not magnetron ready. If south points toward the flywheel, it has been re-polarized and is magnetron ready.

 

 

If you have to have your flywheel reploerized Briggs does it Free of charge.Just ship your flywheel with a small note describing that you would like to have your flywheel reploerized. I've had 3 reploerized. Address is as foillows.

So......Should I take the Nova modules off the ones that I have running them?? They really seem to run pretty good and no sheared keys yet. The only ones that I can't get to run right on them are the magnamatic systems.
