Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. The first thing to look at is if the coil is mounted up adainst the side if the flywheel or if it's older it may be mounted under the flywheel

If the coil is mounted outside the flywheel and has elecronic ignition you want this flywheel

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/201700004050

This is the starter you need
