I have a stationary motor and was wondering if anyone knows how much voltage the magneto should be putting out right now I am only getting 1.6 volts.

It's a low tension mag, you won't feel anything from it. Have him spin the flywheels again and scratch the end of the wire along a bare area on the block, you should see a faint arcing, it's not going to be a "zap" type of spark. And spinning the mag without the wire being grounded is not recommended.

I measured mine with the igniter still attached with a digital meter and it was all over everywhere. With an analog meter it appeared to be .5 volts. Will the igniter fire of the mag out of the engine and grounded?
