Default Webster magneto help

I purchased a 7 Hp Galloway with a webster mag.I'm confused on what mag and bracket should be on it. Right now it has a bracket marked A303M69 which means an AMM mag for a smaller Galloway.The mag it has now has a band marked AMM but it has two magnets. Is this right and will this mag run this engine? Is this mag really a AK with the wrong band? What model of mag and bracket should i have on? Will a AK mag work on this bracket? I could use any help possible....Thanks

Until a Galloway person responds, I offer this from my info:


1-3/4, 2-1/2, 3, 4, 5 hp use AK magneto with A303K16-A ignitor/magneto bracket.

The 6, 7, 8, 9, 12 use the same ignitor/bracket but with the AL magneto.

Also listed are the 1-3/4 and 2-1/2 hp engines to use the AMM magneto and the A303M69-A ignitor/magneto bracket.

One can infer from this information that all of the listed Galloway engines would bolt up either of the listed ignitors. If this is true, perhaps your engine might have originally had the A303K-16 ignitor and it was later substiuted for some reason, but in this hobby, I wouldn't rule out any possibility. Perhaps it came with the A303M set-up and others have it too??!?

The AMM does have two magnets, each of which is rather bulky and thick, unlike the A model's two thin magnets.

The M and MM and their corresponding A303M ignitors have a bolt pattern of 2" by 1-1/2", whereas the AK and AL magnetos have a 2" by 2" bolt pattern.

Certainly, this is no last word on anything, and regardless, there is always some romance for the parts that come on an engine when you get it. Which Galloway ignitor-magneto bracket is more common and which is worth more, someone else can say

One more item to check would be the band on the magneto, if it still exists, to see what numbers it has on it. An original Galloway Webster band would probably have the AMM 69, or at least AMM, though these are often mixed up as years roll by.
