Default Standard Separator Eng -Magneto?

What is the correct magneto for a Standard Cream Seperator engine? Does anyone have any picts of one? Is it a small Dixie -model?
I have the engine but can't identify the mag and it seems to be the wrong one. It has a small Dixie (no model or numbers) with a modified mounting base, but the gears bind when I turn the engine over. It creates a rumbling sound as the mag turns.
Can anyone help with picts or info?

Thanks much!
Loren

The only thing I can tell from the manual is Elkhart Magneto and a Dixie gear.

I have seen Standard Separator engines with at least four different types of mags on them and they all look factory original. What I think is my earliest engine has an Elkhart mag laying on its side on it. I don't remember off hand what the other makes are but these engines were also built with buzz coil ignitions and I also have one with what looks like a factory mag and buzz coil combination on it.
