Well its been a while since I posted here. My LA"s engine is almost all together finally seems like every time I think I"ll get a chance to work on it somethin else comes up but maybe some day it"ll run. My question is where do I get the little fiber connector that connects the mag to the mag drive. When I got my tractor someone had converted it over to a wico model x mag. The mag was froze up so I got an origional case C-4MA mag off ebay. I just went to put it on and it seems as though the fiber connector that was used with the wico mag is to long. When I put the case mag on the base the connector sets it back to far so that I can not bolt the mag down. If anybody out there has a good used connecter that they"d like to sell or if somebody knows where I could get a new one I"d sure appreacate it. Thanks a bunch.

On my tractors (C, L, LA) the connecting collar is metal, not fibre as on the Wico. I had one machined up, can't tell the difference between it and the originals on the other tractors.

I have been told that it is possible to make one up from a plastic cutting board.

The Robert Bosch mag used on the early C's should have the fiber drive. I don't think the American Bosch, or the Case mag needs one. They can be steel. I have been told that the Robert Bosch drive shaft is energized, and it needs to be insulated to work properly. Please let me know if I am wrong. DK
