Default Fairbanks Z type D "salt block Magneto

Does the end of the shaft on a F-M Z Type D "salt block" have a gear on it or is it a coupling? A friend of mine wants to work on the mag. of his engine but is afraid to remove it if it has a gear on the shaft.

Thanks
Dan Donaldson

Timing is pretty simple. Allign the hash mark on the flywheel with the seam for the block and crankcase cover (about the 10 o'clock position when facing the flywheel). Rotate the gear on the magneto until the arrow on the side of the magneto gear is visible through the hole in the block opposite the magneto when the teeth are meshed.

Thanks Harry
