Default Associated "Hired Man"

Normally I hang out on the Onan forum, and lurk here at times. Today I acquired my first hit and miss engine. An Associated "Hired Man" Serial 129870. Rescued it from the scrap pile in an OfferUp ad. It looks to be complete. Nothing is stuck except the valves. Also appears to have been rebuilt at some point, and I believe it has been run within the last 10 years. The main and rod bearings seem to be good.

Time to do some research and see what I can learn! My intent is to get it running again. I am a very experienced mechanic (small engine, diesel, tractors, etc), but this one is a new world for me. Particularly the ignition system. Any advice or pointers would be welcome, but I will also peruse the forum here to see what I can glean from it. So far it's still on the truck and I've soaked all moving parts with penetrating oil. Going to read and learn before I start taking things apart...
