That's another low tension mag. Similar to a wizard. Usually found on relatively early stationary engines.

Coming across more stationary engine stuff than I realized. Thanks for the help

Similar in that they both have horseshoe magnets, but quite different in output voltage. The one on the unknown engine is a high tension mag. It fires the spark plug directly. The low tension mag in this post uses the magneto output to power a ignition coil and then the spark plug.
