Okay, understood. It has the horn/funnel on it? What would that part properly be called? Similar over here gets called Spit Cup.

Okay, checking why I have no bells when cranking the Magneto.

1st Picture: I readjusted the metal piece on the outer end of the Magneto shaft so it is touching. I think this is how it should be now. See first picture. There is a wire under one of the screws that hold this metal piece to the deck so it is supposed to conduct for some purpose.

2nd Picture: Not certain what went on during this phones lifetime but I bet it was refurbished by someone, much of the black paint seems a bitveratically applied. Note the ends of the metal piece on one side compared to the other. One side is a little smaller like it was damaged and maybe filed down a little.

3rd Picture: Ohm meter out and Ringer looks open. Removed Ringer.

4th Picture: No laughing at my notes on the picture of the Ringer! One coil is about 540 ohms, the other coil is open. One terminal removed in the picture. It looks like it is my lucky day, the wire is broken off of the back of the terminal. Should be a comparatively easy fix then I will try ringing again.
