According to the Briggs master parts catalog, 398111 armature will work with your engine. It is the breaker coil with the 394970 Magnetron conversion.There may be a problem if memory serves me right, the magnet polarity on the cast iron engine flywheels was possibly reversed so this system may not work.Someone may have up to date information.
