I was talking with an old timer the other night.  He said that for many years he ran a Case magneto ignition tractor from a battery and coil.  If I got the gist of it correctly he just connected the current from the coil to the earth terminal of the magneto.  Said it ran bettter than with a magneto.  BUT HE DID WARN NEVER TO DO THIS WITH A MAGNEOT THAT IS STILL POTENTIALLY USFUL AS IT WILL DESTROY THE MAGNETISM.

More food for thought.
