The magnetron conversion doesn't work with all briggs eng,briggs admits that on a small percentage of it's mod# eng it won't work due to flywheel issues(reverse magnet polarity,number of magnets on flywheel or weak magnets)in addition depending on type/code# of eng the 320000 series used point type ign or solid state according to my lookup & lists 2 different pn coils,1 for point type ign & the other solid state,the early solid state system had an ext trigger module mounted on coil,later versions had trigger internal in coil,you must have correct pn flywheel for solid state system to work/work correctly on this style system.

As has been said you're probably better off sticking with point type ign system.The 320000 series eng had adjustable flywheel timing,first thing to do is take orig coil to one/more local mower shops & have coil checked in a coil tester,same may be bad/weak,if coil checks ok then I would suspect problem is dirty/burned point contacts,worn push pin,bad condenser,wire to coil shorting to block,incorrect flywheel/coil air gap or weak flywheel magnets,goto link below & read text,will tell you how to set point/flywheel timing.

The fiber push pin for points is still avail(probably pn 298125)to confirm correct pn for pin goto & lookup eng mod/type numbers in briggs eng parts listings,after you have correct part# for push pin(plunger)do a goggle search for briggs+pn,same still listed on ebay & online dealers.

I also get AOL with the FIOS and I really like it better. You can receive and send emails on both, but I usually use AOL. Pictures can be attached to the emails. Hal

Hi Joe, I have FIOS and they're having a sale now. You can get the internet, free local phone calls and about 300 channels of TV. Cost is about $89.00 for one TV set. They installed all new fiber optic cables in my area in 2009. I even helped to pull some cables. We had Comcast for years, but gave it up when they took off channels and put the price up. Hal

If you can't get link to work,just keep trying,in the past 3-4 wks my dialup dsl service has slowed to 14k-28k or just stopped working,I don't know if this is being caused by verizon,earthlink or aol,I haven't been able to get a straight answer out of any of them.

Verizon wants me to change over to their fios system & I won't so I don't if the're slowing me down,earthlink has connection issues that they won't admit to as I haven't been able to download my emails for two days & it sometimes takes 30 sec-2 min to connect to their ip site which transfers to aol which is slow connecting after leaving home pg,I don't know if its one or all three working against me,all I can say is keep trying link to see if you can connect.

I'm ready to dump the whole thing & goto satellite or cable.

Hi Hal,you're correct somehow the S slipped in there this morning(must have been thinking of toro manual/parts lookup).

Rosemary if you're still following goto link below,that's correct address.

Hal-as far as verizon,I only want their service for internet/phone,they can't even come close to my dish network plan as far as number of movie & other channels and price,I also have optium & comcast in may area offering cable internet/phone service and have to check out prices from them.Right now I have dialup with copper wire,its my understanding verizon dosen't want to be bothered maintaining this type of system,also they have a new policy as far as service on copper lines,if you have 2 service calls in 6 months they switch you over to fiber optic weather you want to or not.If you want to spend an unpleasent evening or two of reading goggle verizon fios+complaints,there's some real horror stories posted,the last thing I would ever do is give verizon my email address,bank account# or cc# not to mention their almost non-existant customer service/tech support.
