The Bosch mag sits on the gov side of the engine, just above and forward of exh lever pivot. The two holes on the off side were for a dynamo bracket. Both 2hp engines I've owned had them, and so did my old 8hp. Here's a pic I found on the net last year that shows how how it was setup.



Cheers! NICK
