Default Question on Sears Ted Williams (Tecumseh) Outboard

I am trying to restore an old Sears "Ted Williams" (Tecumseh) 9.9 HP model 217.586211 outboard motor. I'm pretty sure both of the transformer assemblies (part 610785A) are bad and am looking for replacements. That one is hard to come by, though, as the only original part I can find for it anywhere is on ebay for $250, and there is only one. I am wondering if anyone knows a suitable replacement that would work for that. I looked on certifiedpartscorp.com and saw two that may work. They are both for solid state ignitions- parts 37395 or 611056. I'm not sure if they would work, though, and am wondering if anyone around here has replaced that particular part on one of these engines. Would one of those work, or is there another option I am missing? Thanks so much!

By the term "transformer" do you mean ignition coil/s?
If you do, you may be able to have the originals rewound by one of the sponsors from this site.

I had a coil rewound here in Australia and it was far cheaper than buying a new one in from the UK and it worked a treat.

At the top of this page in the dark blue heading and on the far right hand side is 'sponsors' click on that and see if there is one near you and make contact with them. Also if there is what is called NOS (new old stock) it doesn't mean that it will be good. Sometimes they break down over time with the insulator being less than effective so it would need to be properly tested before buying.
