Hi Dennis, yes most of the older engines have the coil outside the flywheel generally at the top and the points and condenser are mount under the flywheel, which requires removing the flywheel to get at them. I can't be more specific with out know the engine make and model, I'm thinking Tecumseh as Sears used them on a lot of their power equipment. On the cooling housing there will be numbers for model etc try locating them.

Your snowblower was made by AMF & same/similar to craftsman 26" blower I have(7hp)as mine was also made by AMF,GBMN is correct eng probably a Tecumseh(H80).

Look on side of recoil starter houseing below heat box cover for carb,there should be a craftsman id tag riveted to houseing,stamped in tag will be sears mod# for eng,spec# & sn,if mod# starts with 143 then eng a tecumseh,if mod# starts with 500 then eng a briggs.IF there are only 2 holes in starter houseing below heat box then either rivets broke & tag fell off or someone removed tag,either way it's gone.

This is an old snowblower probably mid 70's-early 80's,the ign may be point type of solid state as there was a change over in above time frame(bought mine used & never had a problem with ign,so I don't know if point type or solid state ign,never had flywheel cover off)remove flywheel cover,you'll probably find coil mounted over flywheel,IF there is a wire going from terminal on coil to under flywheel,then you have point type ign,if only a single wire connected to coil going to key sw on heat box cover then ign is solid state & has no points/condenser.
