Can anyone tell me if Wico Oc Mags were built in both Right and Left hand configurations. They are correct side up on right hand Reid engine but upside down on the Left hand. Check out the photo


Left hand dial is upside down Right hand dial on top easy to access

On the OC, you should be able to remove the lead out tower and reverse it.

They were made with a crossover shaft that allowed the control to be on the other side via external cogs. Hard to find them though.
