I am putting my grandfathers OO Frick Sawmill back in operation, powered by a beautiful, old, and very heavy 6 cylinder MM HEB164998B (engine) / HUA 70965 (frame), but its missing its magneto. Originally, I understand it burned kerosene, but used gasoline in more modern times.

It needs a few other things, air cleaner, muffler,etc... but I sure would like to see if it runs first.

Does anyone know of the type / model of magentos that went on these engines, and a possible source for one?

Many thanks!

I would GUESS is needs a pretty common CW rotation, flange mount, probably "short lug" magneto.

I would ask the guys at the "MM-specific" Forum to be sure.

Also, go to ebay and search for "Minneapolis Moline magneto, and look at results that come up.

I see a few on there with "gear drive", take a look where your mag mounts and verify that it's a "lug drive".

A Wico XH would be your best choice.

Thanks for that advice..I'm looking now for a Wico model that will fit the engine. Any resources out there with references for that engine?

It is a lug type, if that is what is meant by the two protruding tabs, and not a gear drive.

Been burning up the internet boning up on magnetos, of course.. just not alot out there. I will take your advice and hit the MM guys for more info.

Thanks for the reply!

Steve Belanger located one after some searching. Apparently it is a bit of an odd ball with a special drive cup, with a 52 degree lag angle.

Thank you all for the help. It's a great brute of an engine, and I am looking forward to hearing that thing roar once again.

On another note, the muffler had a leak, and the engine is frozen up.. took off the heads and will start applying acetone and atf. Doesn't look too bad.

I wish I had barring tool to insert in the starter hole; I'm having to use a strap wrench on the harmonic balancer, but a gear would apply more torque I think.

Anyone have any ideas on rigging up a starter drive gear to turn engines on HEB's?
