If it has ignitor ignition you can use a lot of things ,an actual low voltage coil being one , florescent light ballasts another , the stator from an alternator , I have used a regular auto coil (the two little posts only) and the magnet in a ford starter solenoid . Look on harrys igniton page and all will be explained as to the "whys" its just a simple electromagnet .

If you have a spark plug - that will require a buzzcoil and a timer . a different matter entirely .

Hi

Check out page 8 of Domestic Type A Starting Instructions on the following link. This will show you a schematic of how to hook up a type A engine.
