796964 Hi Jim, I can say 796964 is compatible with model 12T1020911F8, I cannot find compatibility based on part numbers though. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!
what gap is between fly wheel and armature magneto?
ivan for model number 796964 asked on 2019-06-30
Hello Ivan, The gap is a business card. Loosen the bolts on the magneto, insert a business card, while holding the business card rotate the flywheels magnets to the magneto and let the magnets pull the magneto into place. Tighten and remove the business card, Thank you for contacting us and good luck with your repair.

  • Started in one pull
    Very easy to find the part on this website, the problem diagnostic program led me right to it. The magneto was in perfect shape and came with useful instructions. The engine started in one pull.
