Replacing igniton coil on BS engine

Hi everyone, i want to replace an old ignition coil with a new electric ignition coil (398811) on my Briggs & Stratton engine (220707-0133).

Here you can see the old ignition coil:

And here you can see the new ignition coil:
https://www.directupload.net/file/d/...unnsx4_jpg.htm

I think I don't need the condenser anymore when using an electric ignition.
Can I just cut the wire between condensor and coil, remove the old coil and replace it with the new coil? What about the condensor and other parts? If I don't need it anymore I can remove it too?

Thanks for your answers :-).

Leave the points and condenser in place, just cut the wire. If you remove the points you will need to plug the plunger hole

The new coil was delivered with a part I don't know the purpose:

Is that the plug you mean?
