If I remove the 2nd cover on my mag to change the condensor and points, will I need to re-time the mag, or can I simply re-assemble it the way it came apart? Thanks

I would always retime the motor. The length of the leg on the rub block may be different from the points that were in it before. This would cause the points to open and close later or earlier depending whether the rub block is longer or shorter. Plus, even if the rub blocks were exactly the same length, new points are going to open later and close earlier than worn points.

Plus, there is nothing more fun than trying to find the TDC mark on a dirty, greasy flywheel in a dark bell housing while wearing bifocals.

the second cover as you call it , i think has the two small gears that are "timed" together. you will need to align the marks on these two gears again as you slide the cover back on after removal. this is internal mag timing, and not engine timing.

Today's Featured Article - The Mud Daubers and the Old John Deere - by Jon Zehnder. I have a 1941, John Deere Model A tractor I have owned for about a year and a half. This is my first (in case my wife reads this, "FIRST") tractor and it has been a learning experience. After considerable advise and assistance from local tractor nuts and the forums of Yesterday’s Tractors, I had finally got it running pretty well. I have tuned it up, overhauled the carburetor, installed a borrowed, rebuilt magneto, installed a new Power-Trol, patched the radiator, installed new front wheels a ... [Read Article]
