Has anyone converted this engine from magneto fired to points ,coil and condenser ? I think all I need is a set of points to open from the same pin that trips the lever on the magneto. It would take some fiddling to get the timing right.

It has been done thousands of times in the old days, now it would be kind of a step down unless you just plain can't get a good mag. Usually does involve some sort of contacts for points, buzz coils work real nice too.

my answer on your magneto remove the covers from the magneto remove the wires from the bottom of the points do not change point setting use 6 or 12 volt coil negative wire goes to bottom of points where you removed the old wires take a condenser from 8n ford connecting condenser wire with negative coil wire at the points plus wire from coil goes to 6 or 12 volt battery ground wire from battery connected to the engine or magneto box i have 3 of them running like that hope this helps
