I have a Sears Suburban 12 hp with the Tecumseh HH 120 engine. It has the solid state electronic ignition. It went bad several years ago and I was able to find a used one that worked about 15 years. But, now it went bad too and it seems impossible to find. I went to the Stens site and found an electronic ignition coil (part #460063) that says it replaces OEM tecumseh (part #30569A). Would that replace my old pulse transformer? Thanks for any help. Bob

I have the same ignition system on an HH100. I had the same problem and wondered what to do. After some research on google, I found a great place to obtain parts for these engines. It's called Farmer's Exchange, located in Kennewick, Washington. Try their website: www.farmex.now.tc

Hopefully they can help you out, if you haven't already got it running!

Keith....:)

I just wandered across this old thread and thought I'd throw in my $.02 just in case you're still considering your options, I had the same problem with an HH120 in a Bolens 1257, those units are getting rare+expensive and it's a complete crapshoot whether even an NOS unit is going to be any good :(
I built a crank-trigger ignition that's working *great*, and I did it for less than $50 :)
The ~edstoller site has good info, combined with the info on the site I'm attaching it was pretty straightforward to combine a Chevy crank-sensor+a GM HEI module+a Ford Duraspark coil for a cheap, repairable, and durable ignition :)

Got a spec and serial number? I might have an old dead engine with a good ignition in storage. I'm willing to look.

Thanks everybody. Joe the coil on the site looks different than mine. The one on ebay looks the same as on the site. I was surprised the bids were up to $66 for used coil, wow. I think I paid $25 for a used one but I think it was about 15 yrs. ago though. I don't have another 12 hp engine to take parts off for a swap to the tecumseh. I saw the site for overnight solutions, but was skeptical. Do you know of anyone who bought a retro kit from this company?
Thanks for your help, Bob

I don't recognize that part #, but I don't think it fits an HH120. I believe the best thing is to go to www.overnight-solutions.com and get a 12V retrofit kit. You might also look at www.home.earthlink.net//~edstoller and get some ideas on a work-around.

OK, it does fit the HH120, but a newer model. It is discussed in home.earthlink.net//~edstoller
