Default Foos Jr.

Can someone send me a picture of the timing and ignition setup on a 2 1/2 H.P. Foos Jr. I just ran into one the other day but all of the ignition setup is missing, so I need help getting that figured out. Thanks

G'day Tanner
Here is a pic of the ignition contact system on my 4 h.p Foos Jnr. I dear say it would be the same as what yours should have. This is the only pic i have at the moment. Its not the best angle but will give you a rough idea of what you will require
