So the Nova II is a replacement for the coil in a standard mower ?I learned about the Nova II from another vintage mower collector. He had installed it a Jacobsen Lawn Queen. If I remember right, it was a 1947, or so. I put one in this 1949 Jacobsen Lawn King after I found it didn't have spark. The installation is really easy, and because the unit is so small, it installs under the flywheel with no trouble, so you never know it's there. What I'll try to do is take pictures of the installation, and let you know how it goes.
The little Turbo-Cut calls for a Champion J-11J spark plug, which has been superseded by the J-11C, although I've read of others using the J-19LM spark plug without any problems. I've just got to look around for a store that has the J-11C in stock around here.
How does it work exactly ? I'm always interested to learn new things!
