I'v enot worked on a ten HP, but it sounds pretty basic. Needs both the
points and condensor, AND the flywheel magnet.
The coil has two small wires. One goes to a screw, the mounting screw. One
of the two mounting screws which holds the coil to the motor.
The other SMALL coil wire goes to the screw terminal on the side of the
Of course, you can guess wher the LARGE coil wire goes, don't have to tell
you that (goes up your friend's butt while you run he starter; serves him
right for bad advice).
Points should be .020 inches at the widest gap.
The other wire which goes to the points is the kill switch, or the ignition
swithc. When the motor is shut off, that grounds out the points.
The coil should be very close to but not touching the flywheel. I like to
gap it with a paper matches cover, or some cardboard ripped from a spark
