Friend of a friend has an old 7.6 convertible, needs a wico mag for it, or his rebuilt ( no spark, I take it). Know any rebuilders close to MD, who would take it on?

It is a common magneto. Any Magneto repair shop
can test or repair it, and has, or can get parts.
The only thing that can go bad is, Points, coil,
or condenser.

The magnets can become weak too, but they can be recharged. Hal

Josh and Ira Barnes, in Gamber? I think I know them from a few of Tasto's sales.
Email is open, if you have their phone #. Wouldn't want to put it out over the net...

Yup, check the points first, then the condenser. The old Gravely mags can be any of 3 brands I think, at least Wico and E-S. Richards lawn and garden should have parts. There are usually a dozen good Gravely mags on Ebay every day. Timing them isn't hard. 3/8" BTDC.

Rub the points with some 320 or 400 wet or dry until they're shiny. Make sure the points are opening and closing. Then see if you have fire.
One other thing if there's no fire check the magnetism of the magnets in the mag. Use a flat blade screwdriver. If you ever pull the mag mark the mag using finger nail polish so you can get back in time. THEN DON'T MOVE THE ENGINE. I don't know of any places in Baltimore that repairs mags. Hal
