Model T coils are about as easy as it gets or the factory coils are a little more expensive

Here are some pics of my Ideal 1HP engine. I would like to find a lawnmower frame to put this on. I would mow my grass with it. Does anyone know where I could get a crank handle for it? I am working on making a new oak frame and battery/buzz coil box. I'll keep the metal frame for now.

Hello all
What a fantastic little engine. Are they hard to come by over there in the US?
Oh, I have to Google them to see if there's a video of one running.
Cheers Scott

One of 805Roadkings friends has one of those, and hooked it up for electric start using an old starter generator.
