Gentlemen, Please consider this plea for help. I am building a Volkswagen Beetle with a Yamaha XS650 pushing it. It was nearly complete but the 1978-ish engine starter engage mechanism failed. After 3 failed attempts to repair it myself, I pulled the engine and took it to a professional motorcycle repair shop. The repair shop burned down with my engine in it. I was able to retrieve the engine in a melted plastic tub from the burned up shop (see picture). As another act or desperation, I purchased a replacement engine that came with electronic ignition. I am all wired for the old engine with points but now I must convert to electronic. I need help identifying the pickup rotor (pictured). My "new" engine has what appears to be stock LD115-02 stator (pictured). I need advice on how to proceed. My wife said shit-can the project but I'm in too deep. Thank You.
