    I see Cotton and I joined the AMCA Forum the same month in 2001. That is a long time ago! Charter members?

    Rudy Kalin is the man. He did the Wico Magneto for my Model A Ford.

    What test did you do? If you simply checked its resistance, and even if you found a high value, that's not good enough. If a condenser fails the resistance test with a standard ohmmeter it definitely won't work in a magneto, but passing that test does not mean it will.

    Rudy fixed the mag on my steel wheeled Farmall F-12 tractor. I was so frustrated as it would always start will a pull from a truck but take 1000 turns with the crank. It now starts perfect. Rudys the man.
