Just learned that Marks Magnetos has a 2 year warranty!!! I called to get a replacement because one wire had broken flush with the coil housing and a splice couldn't be made and found out that it's covered under warranty and that they will fix it at no cost.


The coil is a Bendix for a kohler k160 that is nearly impossible to find. Mark has them new.

Highly recommend Marks!!

Here is their number
1-860-537-0376

They are new that he makes himself. The coil works very well. It got the 58' RAM back up in running with no problems. It is a much better coil than the original Bendix!

The phone # comes back to Marks Magneto Service out of Colchester, Ct. Nice guy I've met him and bought parts from him, he is usually at a couple of the local engine/tractor shows offering parts and repair services. Got a buddy's one lunger Cushman Cub Bean Special running again when his Wico EK mag quit during the show, Mark diagnosed the problem, fixed the mag and charged for the parts only while we waited, now that is service!!

I removed the link due to being a different "Mark's Magnetos" from the original poster's thread.
