I have a 1941 ac modle b and I can't get the maginto to reach the gear that turns it. The ears on it seem to be about 5/8 of an inch short from sliding into the slot. I have called around and I seem to have the right mag. Any and all ideas will be a big help. Thanks

If you have that wide of distance the governor shaft would have pushed out the front of the governor cover.

Click on the link and then click on the pictures to move forward to see what the problem (could)be.

you can scale this drawing of the mag and see if it is close. you should have a FMX or FMJ mag on your tractor ??? Most would fit, i would guess that the mag distance is a standard on MOST mags. I dont have the depth of the gear inside the motor housing. Was this running or did you take apart and repair ?????

I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace.
