John Deere

I have an old 111 with a briggs 11hp motor 252707 verticle got it in parts coil was missing purchased a coil points and condencer installed coil and points don't know were to add the condencer if this motor needs one i have just enough spark to get a snap off the coil wire to ground install a plug (new) and it's gone .was going to go with new ignition but wanted to see if the motor would even run before adding a lot of $ to an old mower.

Chances are, the place you purchased the parts will not take them back because they are electrical related parts. You should have purchased (the dealer you bought them from should have recommended) a solid state ignition coil instead of the point ignition coil and points and condensor. The Magnetron ignition coil is Briggs part number 398811 and installs exactly the same as the regular coil and you throw away the points and condensor.
