Default Help needed to figure out what mag needed on missing FM 1 1/2 engine

Hi everyone
I bought a Fairbanks Morse 1 1/2 z model D engine
It looks like it's in good condition has compression but somebody robbed the mag off of it at the auction house

This is my first hit and miss and I'm not sure what mag I need
My research online makes it sound like I need a Bosch AB33 but not sure on that and have no clue if I need a long arm or a short arm
Any help is greatly appreciated
I would like to get this pieced back together

The Fairbanks Z D can use a FM J, X, R, or RV1 magneto & takes a 42 tooth gear. A Bosch AB33 Will Not work on this engine. I do have a couple of these magneto's & gears available, if needed contact me.
