Looks like a typical 49cc piston port 2 stroke. Ebay and Amazon are the places to check. I honestly forgot what the Piston Port coils look like. Pulled off and match it up with ones on eBay for Amazon. Look up 49cc 2 stroke.

Ok thank you I haven't been able to find anything that the mounting holes line up to it but still looking was going to start asking any motorsports shops next I got told to go to sargent's motorsports by several people so might start there when they open here's a picture of the ignition coil if that helps any

Don't waste you time at motorcycle shops they won't have any parts for your weed wacker engine... And most lawn and garden small engine shops won't be able to search for parts because the engine is a Chinese knock off.

Search eBay for = Ignition Coil L7T Spark Plug For 43cc 49cc 2 Stroke Minimoto

Keep in mind the APC mini chopper is very old and is no longer manufactured in fact when it was still manufactured pep boys stopped carrying it because they were unable to get parts for them...

One thing to keep in mind is never ride one farther than you're willing to walk they were intended as a children's novelty rideable toy.

Ok thanks so I should buy a better engine for it is what your actually saying one I can get parts for and put a little bit more use on. And thanks for a model name on it that's going to help a lot

You will be a lot happier if you get something that has Honda Yamaha Kawasaki Suzuki you know something that you can actually go to a dealership and get parts for and street legal if your into minis Honda groms are nice or a older YSR maybe even a used scooter 🛵 I really hate to see people dumping money into those APC novelty mini choppers especially since I know that they were discontinued in 2006 and there is basically zero parts availability
Especially if your going to use it to delver Uber eats your going to need good reliability.

I would use it possibly as a daily driver but not as a delivery vehicle. If you know enough about two strokes you'll be fine but if you don't you will be in trouble a couple times a day possibly depending on how many deliveries you have. You just need a regular less than 50cc gas scooter. Honda Spree or something. It'll cost you a little bit more but more worth it in the end

Right was just thinking I could buy a couple parts and keep earning a little bit more cash until taxes come through then I'm going to be buying a used car or seeing about financing a new one with whatever I had earned for a down payment
