OT - 1960's lawnmower

Recommended Posts

As the title really...it's a Suffolk Punch from circa 1960. It's got a points/condensor/big coil of wire type ignition system, but the big coil of wire has a short between two of the three wires. Any ideas how I can get my hands on a new one? Tried fleabay, and even though I can get a whole mower for £1 it seems a little overkill...

I had actually considered megasquirt...or rather a homemade ignition/fuel system. Only problem is a lack of electricity to run it...might be able to do something with lots of wire and the current laminated iron pickup to generate 12v - then use an ignition coil to fire the spark. Fuel injector instead of carb, O2 sensor in exhaust....wonder if I can do electronic control of the valves as well... hmmmmmmm

Vapour anyone?
