Tecumseh H60 points retrofit

Wanting to update to breakerless ignition, any good experiance with changing over with reliability foremost. I really don't think heat is an issue with a sensible location. Problems I have read about seem to be with 2 stroke and marine conversions. Looking at Atom/blue, rotary/kawasaki single connection, rotary/nova2. Coil is under flywheel and flywheel is iron- not sure about magnets whether one or two.

I will tell ya what I was told 10yrs ago.



There are no "good" conversions for Tecumseh points. Only for Briggs.


If you have a clean set of points and a good condenser, it will put out reliable spark for years.

Did some work to this unit, bit of a struggle to start it- before I put any money into ignition, I wanted to know which way to jump. The Atom module states that cast iron flywheels may be an issue. BTW I have no experience with points, not a big deal but would prefer to eliminate. Going to give this a shot- their shipping is reasonable.

One of the things that I was told, there is no way to set the timing. With points it was easy to do with a test light and dial indicator.

Besides, point/condenser have worked for the last 52 years in my dads '67 Tecumseh.

Post up your results.
