Try Hit N Miss Enterprise. They will have a manual with pictures and probably have all the parts you need.

Some of the Witte w/head engines were equipt with Bosch mags or Wico EK. ( Bosch being the earlier model ) If the mag bracket is still there and it has the common vertical 2-hole mag mount, it had a Wico EK.

Does the Bosch and Wico EK mags mount the same? How do I tell which is correct? Can anyone tell me what year this engine was made? Thanks, Mark

My chart says it was made in 1926.

1926 would use a Wico EK magneto. The most sought after mag known to mankind. You can get a parts diagram from the Hit N miss enterprise catalog, (wich is free). I think they have it on thier web sight.

Kyle , Does the mag push rod screw into a ecentric on the cam gear? If so is the cam gear one piece with a cam for the exhaust and a ecentric for the mag? I've never looked at one of these up close before. Thanks, Mark
