See the heading Retrofitting An Older Ignition Armature in the link below. It gives details of converting to solid-state ignition.

The engine model number, type and code is needed to determine proper conversion kit.

How do I replace the ignition?

A 5hp with points has to be a 130000 series engine. The cheapest solution is the 394970 kit. The easiest is a new armature p/n 397358.
