Photo Fairbanks Jack Junior

Fairbanks Morse Jack Junior going together. Can I use the spark saver on the engine with the magneto? Waiting for the cart parts from sandblasting to get into paint.

Spark savers weren't used on mag fired engines. The reason is that they make a ground circuit when the engine is to fire.

This would short out the mag when it needs to fire. Kinda hard to start that way.
Take care - Elden
