How do you put new MAGS on a magneto?

First, let’s install the magneto driver or drive gear from the old mags onto the new mags and torque the nut to 120 to 320 inch pounds. Use the supplied cotter pin to secure the castellated nut with the long leg up toward the end of the shaft. On impulse coupling magnetos, there should be. 010 to. 020 inch end play on the gear.

How do you install a slick Magneto?

All Slick magnetos that were manufactured in the last 25 years use a small pin that is inserted through the distributor block and through a corresponding hole in the distributor gear. When the pin is installed correctly, the magneto is ready to be installed on the aircraft.

How do you put new MAGS on top of old Mags?

First, let’s install the magneto driver or drive gear from the old mags onto the new mags and torque the nut to 120 to 320 inch pounds. Use the supplied cotter pin to secure the castellated nut with the long leg up toward the end of the shaft.

How do you remove magnets from a magneto?

Charge them on the magneto as an assembly. Removing the magnets from a magneto causes them to lose some of their magnetism. It is possible to remove the magnets without weakening them by first installing a ‘keeper’ across the poles. The keeper should be a material which conducts magnetism well, such as soft iron.

What happens when a magneto points open on a car?

When a magnetos points open, the light for that magneto will turn off and the audio tweeter will emit a signal-or change the tone, depending on your particular model of tester. That magneto would be firing a spark plug during normal engine running operations at this instant. Equipment for engine timing can be purchased from these suppliers:

How to get the most performance out of your Magneto?

1) Take the case of an engine enthusiast who wants to get the maximum performance out of his magneto. He removes the magnets, takes them to his local magneto service center for recharging, then puts them back on the mag. Now he gets a weaker spark than before.

How does a slick Magneto work?

Slick Magnetos. One magneto system supplies the current to one set of plugs, while the second magneto system supplies the current to the other set of plugs. The airplane’s double ignition system provides better performance because of more efficient combustion and a higher level of safety through redundancy.

How do I troubleshoot ignition problems with slick magnetos?

When troubleshooting an ignition problem, verify at least twice that the magetos are installed correctly. A second set of eyes is always helpful in these situations. In hopes of eliminating some of these installation issues, let’s review the basics of installing a Slick magneto.

How to install slick magnetos on aircraft?

All Slick magnetos that were manufactured in the last 25 years use a small pin that is inserted through the distributor block and through a corresponding hole in the distributor gear. When the pin is installed correctly, the magneto is ready to be installed on the aircraft. First, remove the white plastic distributor cover and save the screws.
