I need one horseshoe magnet for my 315h
« on: June 06, 2020, 04:56:26 PM »
Anybody got a single magnet for the mag in a 315h?
Somebody ganked one out of my 315H, and you gotta spin it with a drill, to get enuf power outa it, to ring the OP :(
Would like to replace it if I can find one reasonable...
Regards

Sometimes there were only 2 magnets. Make sure that the ones on the magneto are phased properly . There should be some marks stamped on the magnets

Long ago, I asked the same question, and got the same answer. + some mags were 2 bar others 3 bar.

You can probably verify if it should be a 2 bar mag vs a 3 bar mag, by researching some of the old WE catalogs in the TCI Library.

I worked on a WE magneto lately and searched this forum. I bookmarked this link that I found helpful:
