Thread: Flathead ignition

  1. #1

    Flathead ignition

    I tried to put my new Arc 6620 flywheel on my (very old) Briggs flathead yesterday. The points cover prevented it from going on by about 1/4". I called Arc and they said I need a newer style ignition setup which eliminates points. They said get Briggs p/n 397358.

    Is this correct? Is this all there is to it? Just bolt on this coil and remove the points, condenser, and points pushrod?

    You may have to trim off the points cover boss, where the points and condenser cover mounting screw was too.As noted plug the hole where the breaker arm and plunger was, and loose the un-needed parts.The little points spring does make a good pull spring for a tillotson set up .
