More Information on Tayoga Engine?

Reader Darrell Bower is looking for information on a Tayoga engine manufactured by the Field Force Pump Co.

 Tayoga engine 

This is a Tayoga engine built by Field Force Pump Co. How does that ignition work? I know it takes a spark plug and buzz coil, but what trips the coil? What direction does the flywheel turn? I know most engines turn back from the top. Does this do the same? I would be happy to hear from anyone having any information about Tayoga engines.
