Heald Super Bronc VT-8 Engine Decal

Hi all,

I will be removing and painting the engine shroud off my VT-8 Super Bronc. I want to purchase and apply the correct decal(s) for the engine. A Google image search shows a variety of decals used by Tecumseh HM80 engines. My engine numbers are as followed: HM80-155042A SER 4165R. Also, what is the correct year of this engine ('74, '84, etc)? Thank you for any help and insight you can provide.

Maybe one way to determine the year of manufacture between 1974 and 1984 would be if the engine had a points/condenser ignition vs. electronic ignition. By 1984 had Tecumseh switched over to electronic ignition?
