Send that mag to Nebraska Kirk. It will be good as new.

Take a marker and make a mark on the body where the tower of the wire goes. Now remove the cap and watch where the rotor stops and snaps when it fires the rotor should be at the mark when it snaps just mite be your problem. The gears that turn the rotor can be moved to the rotor is in the correct position. Just finished a mag that they converted to 12v to get it to start when all that was wrong was position of rotor 12v made it spin so fast the impulse doesent work it also made timing faster and motor didnt run well repositioned the rotor now it runs fine. Even starts better.

Back in the 1960's and 1970's I bought parts for my Viking and Standardtwin garden tractors from American Farm Machinery. The first parts came from New York Mills, MN and then from Ottertail.
I should've flown up to North Dakota when I was in Chicago in 1978. Hal

Rub your points with some 320 wet or dry then see if you have spark. Rub them until shiny. Also check the point gap to make sure your rubbing block isn't worn off. Hal
