  • I have an early '43 warhorse that has weak spark. I'd like to install new points and condenser as I have no idea when they were last installed by the previous owner.

    My question: Can the magneto and attached drive assembly simply be removed from the tractor like you would a front mount distributor, or is it best to leave it connected to the tractor and pull the hood to gain access to the points?

  • It can be removed to be worked on, but when it is reinstalled , it will have to be timed. a bit more than just reinstalling a front mount.
    there is a section in the service manual thats talks about the magneto.

    I got a magneto on a 8n that has an industrial engine in it. It has been about 7 years now and I haven't touched it since I rebuilt the engine.
