I finally "got to" the magneto today on the subject motor.
Coil tested okay on the ohm meter, but hook up to the Stevens
tester another day.
I didn't realize when I took the motor apart that the magneto
advance / kill switch handle was broke off.
Looked at photos of my uncles, and sure enough, he has one.
I forgot to measure the distance between the handle bolt holes.
What's the chance a handle from another mag will fit?
It must have been broke for the last owner, as there was no
kill wire dangling out the bottom of the mag plate.
If worse comes to worse, I'll bolt on a broom handle!Still have not figured out what 18mm spark plug I should
use. Any one know?
At least it's all going together, albeit slowly. Putting the lower
unit together was kind of a "pain". I think I had more "Right Stuff"
and Ultra Black Permatex on me that the motor!
