I have done all the wires. The only thing i can't replace is the trigger coil or the pick up coil on the flywheel. There is two wires in side of a grounding sheath. How do i fix it or what can i us to replace it. Would a pick up off a distributor work if so what one. my coil has two
pick up point on it and the distributor has only one but does have the two wires,
i have no idea what do

You can get replacement coils from Parts Unlimited.
A local small engine shop should be able to get them for you.
