It might be easiest to get your coils and coil box and commutator working with a 6 or 12 volt battery. The wooden (or plastic) coils are available new and the same part is used in the model T Ford cars. The Fordson model F "magneto" is really just an alternator (variable frequency and voltage AC) used to supply voltage to the coils. There were parts available a long time ago to connect a standard magneto to the place at the front of the engine where the commutator usually is located. You could connect a magneto (using two sprockets and a chain) with one of the sprockets being at the place where the commutator was located. It might be possible to connect a distributor (with points) in place of the commutator, and use a coil and battery. Try Bittner Engineering LLC on the web. They have an electronic replacement for the Ford model T ignition (same as the Fordson). There are others on the web (just search for "ford model t electronic ignition".
