This modification was done by the previous owner, a retired engineer. I can't argue with how he did it, although his placement was suspect. I think I will relocate it closer to the tee handle and use a toggle switch.
The coil is bad. Anyone have a line on a good coil at a good price?? I took those shots while I went through the ignition. I suspect it was sitting waiting on the coil given the spares he had and the overall condition of the mower and the $7 price tag.
