Anyone REAL familiar with old Eska (Sears) small air-cooled outboards?

I've also asked this in the Marine section but there's WAY more traffic here...and this engine is more like a Tecumseh lawnmower than an outboard

The air-cooled low-hp 2-stroke outboards once made by Eska and sold at Sears, Wards, etc have a common failure of the solidstate ignition assembly and no replacement parts have been available for years. I'm pretty sure I've read that these CAN be repaired but I've never run across a description.

Anybody know the way?

As Schultz would say, I know nothing.
Here is a video about checking them out. Have a good one. Geo

Here is a link to a pdf.

Here someone replaces it with an evinrude.

I'm asking about the trigger coil/CDI module assembly ahead of the spark coil, but thanks.
