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.

i cant seem to find the 398111 part. is that part in the 394970 kit itself. i found that kit on ebay. i did find this

This is a Brand New Genuine Briggs & Stratton Magnetron Ignition Kit. Part# 394970. You will receive this in the Original Briggs & Stratton Package.

Electronic, fits all engines since 1983 with 2 leg coils except 9-10 & 16 HPcast iron engines or twin cylinder engines Fits our # 33-362 and # 33-365 magneto coils.

do you still think this will work
