Hello, it depends on the year; the following blog has a good section on the N type magnetos, and models;

If you put the same question in the downunder forum on here, I'm sure there will be plenty of people who can help.

Regards Craig

I don't know how to time my ronaldson and tippett. I have tried by turning to magneto around 180 degrees and the gears but no luck.
