Well worth it. Thanks a bunch. This site and these forums are great. I visit several forums a day that relate to other interests that I have. This one is just like those in that there are people with much more experience and expertise than I and they are more than willing to share their knowledge and even literature that they have collected over many years .
So, gaining all this knowledge and maybe even adding to the collective knowledge here is all good.
I sent some pics out to a guy that is a rebuilder. I found him by doing a search for mag rebuilders.
He replied back to send some pics. I did. Have not heard back from him yet.
People are busy. I sent him a note tonight.
I am sure there had to be something inside on the rotor.
Is there anyone that still has a supply of caps and distributor rotors for these mags?
The distributor rotor is gone on this mag as well.
The cap is serviceable I think.
I will take a look at the carb tomorrow when I get home. I am sure I can read the number on the disk.

There is a part of the laminations that comes down for a pick up like the radius in a flywheel.
I can take some pics this weekend. I was going to go out and have a look at the carb tonight when I got home.
Decided to stay in the warm house as the wind is blowing 30mph and its snowing.
Will get those numbers this weekend as well.
I did hear back from the guy I sent pics to. He told me there was a wound coil inside on the rotor.
He wanted me to call him and talk.
He has a website. Rebuiltmags.com

The coil is missing as well as the magnet on the rotor. Wonder why someone would remove all that?
They must have had a mag that those parts would have worked on.
Well, I guess this mag is not much good now. Bummer. The guy from the rebuild shop told me the coil alone would cost 175 bucks to wind. Not sure what others would charge. He also said it would take time just to find the parts I need.
I guess I can start doing some research on coils that might fit and go from there.

I may be foolish to try but try I will. I have made plenty of things work again when someone told I could not do it.
If it comes to the point that it is going to cost me too much then I will look for another mag.
So , does anyone have a mag that will work on this engine? One they would want to part with?
