Default 25HP Superior

Near my house, there is a 25HP Superior located in an old grist mill that is actually water-powered but had the engine as backup power. This mill and it's surrounding the property are now part of a museum complex. My son and I now have permission to try and restore this engine which is a static display into a running display. This will be an interesting project and will entail considerable work. This engine was originally hot tube fired using natural gas from a well on site. This well was long ago sealed off and we would like to fire this with a Wico OC magneto and use propane. I have a magneto that I will donate to the museum but I don't have the bar with a roller that operates the magneto. I'm wondering if anyone on this site knows of one for sale or if none are for sale could someone give me detailed photos and dimensions so that I could fabricate one! Any help would be appreciated.

Larry, sounds like a worthwhile project. I bought several of the trips from a vendor at Portland a few years ago. I can't remember who at the moment. Maybe my buddy can remember. I am out of town for a few days but will send measurements when I return. They seem simple to make.

My Dad has a 20 HP Superior with probably that type Mag on it.
I'll take a picture of it. As I recall it doesn't have points in it. I wish I knew how it works without points!

Chevy - I have the mag and know how it works. What I don't have is the bar that fits in the back of the mag that trips the mag by way of a roller on the end of the bar. What I need is good pictures and dimensions of the bar and roller. The external dimension I can figure out because it runs in a slot in the back of the mag. Its the length of the bar and the details of the bar and roller I need. Thanks

Plenty of the mags around but very few trips. Nothing holds the trip in place and I guess when the mags are unbolted they just fall out and are left where they lay. Also a lot of them are wore out.
