  1. I bought 2 from Iron Bull last year and a neighbor bought one at the same time, by buying 3 at one time and picking them up it was cheaper. Should of bought them years ago as the shade is nice on a hot day. They are well made and easy to install and probably as close to original as you will find. About 3 months after we installed these my neighbor had a truck to rear end him on a county road and climb his left rear tire. He swears that if he hadn't installed the canopy on his 856 that he wouldn't be here today, and after helping him repair his tractor I have to agree (he had someone riding wit

    F-4 Magneto

    Finally got this magneto to firing, had to replace the coil and recharge the magnet. Since I didn't have a charger I tried to wire and battery trick to recharge the magnet and it worked well once I got enough wire wrapped around the magnet. After setting for almost 40 years this one is running again. Now just need to get it cleaned and painted. Thanks for all the replies and help, as always this is the place to go for information.

    Looks like I need to find a coil and recharge a magnet as the coil failed your test and the magnet won't hold a 7x7 plate of 1/4 steel. Thanks for the help.

    Will try the business card and see what happens, I'm sure the condenser is grounded but will check again. The impulse coupling seems to be working and I installed everything according to a service manual I have. Thanks for the tip.

Do to needing some repairs it hasn't been started since then, as I'm now retired I started restoring it so that I can pass it on to my Grandson. However the magneto isn't producing a spark, I have replaced the points, condenser, cap, brushes and the magnet seems to be good. Could the coil of went bad just setting all those years and is there an easy way to check it? Except for some paint I have about got it complete if I can get the mag to fire. This s

    I was a full time Crew Chief with the IN Air National Guard getting my F-16 Ready for a local mission, when the Expediter came by and told us to stop everything. 50 minutes later we had some jets in the air with live munitions instead of practice, kept some in the air 24 hrs a day for the next few days. It was later that day when finally got to watch any TV. We can't afford to ever forget although I'm afraid many already are.
