Modifying Ryobi 43cc 2 Cycle

Hi all,
I have a Ryobi BackPack Blower Engine. from a RY08420A. It is a 43cc 2 cycle. Nice little compact short block. It has the coil mounted on a bolt on bracket to the lower right of the shaft. I noticed there is mounting bolt holes to mount the coil on the head. I know that just moving the coil there would drastically change the timing. My question is, does anyone know any other equipment the engine would be used in? That way I could order a flywheel with the correct timing. I am using it on a scooter and I would rather have the coil on top, nice and compact.
 
Thanks,
Ken C.

    I think I may have found my own answer. First off the engine is a 42cc, says so right in the model number. Ryobi/Homelite makes a 42cc Chainsaw. It looks like the exact same engine except for placement of the coil. (score) The coil also has a shorter spark plug wire (also score). I'm stoked. From what I have read, this should be a 4.2 Hp engine. Should be perfect for my scooter.
