Default Stover CT2 question.

here are a couple shots of the mag area of my Stover CT2. I do not have any pics of a complete CT2 so can someone please tell me if I am missing any linkage for the mag? or provide me with a complete pic? I am trying to get the serial number information, but the tag is hard to read, almost like it was not stamped very hard or something, it is in good shape though, any tricks on reading the numbers?
I got the cylinder head off today and am in need of a exhaust rocker bracket as mine looks like a high school welding 101 class project but it will work.

thanks.

greg.

Greg. On the ignition parts you show in the pictures two things that I see missing are what is called the Trip Rocker It is what connects the Wico mag to the Magneto trip lever, You will also need the return spring that resets the magneto. Hit and Miss enterprises has the rocker for $22.50 Ask for part # E K 11. Hit and miss has an ad under big engines showing all the parts needed for the ignition.and the part numbers for each one. Hope this helps, Joe Morris

Greg,
What you have there is a throttle governed CT2.
As far as I can see you are missing the mag trip which goes on that short shaft on the mag bracket. Do you have the mixer for that engine?
That rod that it has under the push rod goes to the mixer to operate the throttle.
That is a kerosene engine that starts on a small reservoir of gas that is part of the mixer; once it gets going on gas and warms up you can start opening the kerosene needle valve.
Hope this was of some help.

Yes, I have all mixer parts, the engine is totally complete except for the mag parts, I would like to come up with another exhaust valve rocker though.

Greg-
There should be a flat boss on the front of the cylinder block, just above where the head bolts on. Carefully clean that flat boss, and you will find the engine serial number stamped there. Perhaps it will be easier to read the numbers on that boss than the numbers on your brass tag.
Starbolt Engine Supplies sells the rocker arm for the magneto drive, as well as the return spring for the magneto drive rocker.

Hit and Miss Enterprises sells the CT-2 Exhaust Rocker Arm Assembly under their p/n HM808. http://www.hitnmiss.com/17.htm#ct

They also carry, as do others, manuals that cover the setup, operation, and parts breakdowns for the Stover CT engines.

It looks like your Stover was originally fitted with a Wico EK with a Type 2 drive mechanism. This popular magneto was used on a many, many different brands of engine, all with the same linkage. I have close up photos of mine (on my Taylor engine) on my web site... <http://www.oldengine.org/members/inzero/>

just an update, is it possible that the flat boss above the cylinder head was never stamped? I have carefully cleaned it and see no indications of numbers being there.

was able to pull some numbers off of the Stover today.
T? 264932 is what I saw, not sure of the character after the 'T' though.
Any sites for Stover serial numbers?
