What is the mag used on? What engine is next to the mag? Unusual magnets on that one - looks like an old telephone mag!

I have the remains of a 4 acre mower with the Ames mag. They were an early mag.

I would say the Ames magneto was made by Heinze electric company also in Lowell Mass. Heinze's look very similar and was used on IHC highwheelers, so a search in that direction may help. Jim
