  • Magnetic Idler Pulley
  • Never heard of such a thing. Does this make your "N" idle smoother so you don't spill your beer ;-) Or is it a typo?

  • This is art work taken almost exactly from the Tractor Parts Catalog March 1946, Figure 72, assembly 11.4.13, titled "Magneto Idler Pulley" and who knows how many versions in between.

  • That was probably NAMED *before* there was AUTO CORRECT, even... today, however, ending up with the wrong word is pretty normal... :-)

  • Dan, I believe that is used with the magneto ignition
    on the 2ns that do not have a generator to control belt tension.
    My gen set has one.

  • I heard tell a few years ago Ford was coming out with a "Magnetic Rear Axle".
    This idler pulley might go along in the same accord, I am not sure.
    The axle was good for picking up pieces as they fell off.
    Maybe the idler pulley does the same for engine parts or it could be what holds the whole thing together. North at the front, South at the back, opposites attracting, and it all stays together?

    I also heard tell that GM is coming out with a new model next year called,
    "Total Recall".
    It seems it is going to mostly assembled with all the parts recalled over the past 20 years.
    Hit the link for further details.
