Look forward to the progress.
This is a oscillator engine, no coil, no condenser, no battery, no spark plug. The Sumter #14 is a low tension magneto and fires an ignitor. See pictures.

I'm sending the mag and ignitor to Rudy. If it were mine, I would attempt dyi repairs, but the engine belongs to my employer. Taking my wages into account, it seems illogical to dyi.

Thanks to all that advised/commented. Now, on to the mechanical parts of the rebuild. https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=184595

p.s. - the "thing" in question is a wick.

low tension magneto still has a coil at least. That is one of the basics of generating the electricity to make the spark.
That is unless I have learnt nothing over the last decade.

cobbadog,
I'm sorry, I assumed that you meant coil and condenser as in Kettering ignition. Thanks again for your input.
Dave
