Compatible magnetos for DC

I have a DC with the original Case Eagle magneto. I know that these are somewhat more rare than other makes, and that parts can be hard to come by. My question is what other magnetos are compatible with my tractor that are easier to find parts for. My brother has a box of old mags that we aquired some years ago, fairbanks-morse and IHC being the only models that look like they might work out of the bunch. Just curious about my options if my eagle goes south. Thank you all.

I use a H-4 off of a Farmall H on my D. Parts are easy to come by through Westward and a local guy can still fix them.

Case has a strange lag time on the firing in the mag. I think it is like 23degrees or something. I don't know of any others that will work.

Either will work and you will be able to get parts BUT if it where mine i would go with a Distrubitor like i done with my SC! It made a much smother, easy starting on 6 volts, Much nicer running tractor with more bottom end power! I wish i would have done it sooner!

I've thought about this, but it is going to be mostly a parade or show tractor, and not really a serious work tractor, so I want to keep it as stock as I can, Just so others can get a glimpse of how things used to be when they see my tractor. Although a different mag would not be technically correct, it would still capture the spirit of my piece of history. Perhaps if I start doing more practical stuff with it, I wwill switch over.

I'd go with a right-angled Delco, used on IH's & AC's-it'll give you more room by the oil filter. As a bonus, an old-line IH parts guy can go to the shelf & get what you need without going to parts book or computer. We've got a couple of DC's & SC's that we've used these on & they work fine, like indicated above. Plus, if you decide to go to 12V, all you have to do is get a 12V coil. (My $0.02 worth. jal-SD)

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
