Put a black vacuum hose in place of that coil wire. Jim

Oh! That's clever! I like it! A vacuum hose in place of a coil wire. Sneaky!

Not the best practice. on a mag tractor, a second wire to a hidden switch then to ground will be effective.
THe mag can form an internal trace of carbon from arcing inside. It can be hard to diagnose and can result in a failed coil insulation.
A coil can be dammaged but will usually flash over to the small terminals doing no harm.
A stolen or kid driven tractor is much worse than even a failed mag, but a coil es easy to replace. Jim

I've heard that one should not fire a magneto without providing a path to ground. Old wive's tale?
My question is: can I replace the coil wire of a magneto with a piece of black vacuum hose without hurting the magneto upon an attempt to start the engine?

Thanks, Hendrik

I really like your thinking on this. I'd never thought of doing this. A thief would probably work all day and never figure out the problem
