Am I remembering this correctly? You can use a distributor and drive from a WD 45 on a DC Case? Thanks, Don

Has to be a WD. The WD45 the distributor housing and governor housing are made in one piece.

Just remember an IH 4-cylinder flange-mount mag won't sub for a CASE flange-mount mag unless the drive gear is re-timed to the camshaft.

The angle of the drive slot when the impulse "trips" is significantly different, IIRC, the CASE trips when the drive slot is horizontal, the IH H4 trips at a slot position of about 45 "earlier.

There is a guy named Ken who is advertising in the photo ads on this site. He is out of MI. 231 250 0892. I bought a magneto for my DC case from him worked as new. Price was reasonable. Give him a try I doubt you will be disappointed.

Yessir. I work on the side for a great mentor of mine. Google rebuiltmags (.) com and it will come up. Rudy is a great guy, and rebuilds them for people all over the world!

Photos are of just some magnetos and carburetors I have done while working with him.

Yep, an up-right (right-angle) Delco will bolt right up. I-H sold them as a replacement for mags back in the day & Allis Chalmers used them as well. (Delco made the ones that I-H branded as their own.) We liked to use the Delco up-right when the Case mags couldn't be repaired anymore because the fit better on an SC if it has an oil filter, but a genuine I-H will work, too. If your electrical system has been up date to 12 volt, just get a 12 v coil w/o resister. The points don't care if they get a 6V or 12v jolt. jal-SD

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
