  • Magneto meshing on angle drive
  • Good morning. I am ready to put the mag. on my 2n for the first time but am having a little problem meshing the mag. to the angle drive. I am on the top of the stroke on the number 1 cylinder. I had the mag. rebuilt and he put a piece of tape across the bottom of the mag where it meshes with the drive stating number 1. I did not spin the mag. at all. It does not line up. Am I missing something??? One thing I thought about is that I did pull the drive apart to clean and lube gears. Is it possible that I put it back together wrong??? One or two teeth off??? Sounds logical?? Thanks guys

  • Check angle drive gear tooth alignment, the teeth must be aligned for proper timing to mount the magneto in time.

  • To be sure, I am going to find top dead center on no.1 and then align the drive with the mag and if its still off, take the drive apart again.. After taking the drive apart I got to thinking maybe I just put it back together, like I said, one or two teeth off. Thanks
