I got a 8n with an industrial engine in it, it is a side mount block with a front mount distributor cover/drive housing with a Magneto. It does have starter.
I did convert to 12 volts because the 6 volt generator gave out. I Overhauled it in 2006 and have not touched the magneto since. Love the Magneto.
I got another magnetor to fit my 51 side mount 8n, going to get it mounted one of these days!!
