Hello! Let's see if we can work together and come to a satisfactory conclusion!

What engine do you have? Does it have electronic ignition or just points and condenser? Can be wired so the coil gets power when key is turned on, and kill power to the coil for stop, when key is turned off. Much similar to wiring on an old tractor. Alternator can be replaced with a single wire alternator, which requires only a single wire to the posiitve battery cable connection.
