Photo ONAN Military Generator 1940's

My dad gave me this old generator that he used to power a old electric Milwaukee chainsaw. It has been sitting for quite a few years. The twin opposed engine turns over, but with fresh gas won't start. I ck'd for spark, and found none. I removed the fan/flywheel to ck points and condenser, they looked in good shape. One of the plug wires has come off the coil unit. I would like to find a coil and get it running. Maybe an external coil and ignition powered by 12v? Here is a picture of the tag. Any info would be great!
