I have tried many online shops and have searched everywhere. :banghead3
I need the coil\magneto and the correct condenser. These parts have long been discontinued. Can these parts be rebuilt somehow, or is this the end??

I looked for a coil and condensor for my 61 Ride a Matic and never could find one so I switched to an external coil and condensor, I used one from a K181 and mounted it up under the hood out of sight.

The downside is you need a battery to run them, but who doesn't like the electric start opportunity?

I was going to do that on mine but had a mag set up fall into my hands. I believe any condenser will do in a pinch.

Thanks guys. I have emailed just about everyone out there about the coil. Waiting to hear back from Brian Miller.

WOW !!!!! OOpPs, Sorry, can you sense the excitement???

I am tickled pink. I was finally able to locate a coil for my 59-60 Ride a matic. I installed it and this thing starts on the first pull and just purrs like a kitten.
Oh the joy in seeing this thing run again and so smooth. What a great little machine.

The coil I puchased is new, so I should get some years out of it.

:drunkie::thanku:
