Default New question about Mag

I was asking about my W-12/F-12 that will start but will not keep running. I was looking at my mag. It is a F4 I can not find the condenser. Do these mage have a condenser? If so is it internal to the coil? How do I get to it and what is the replacement part number?

Thanks

Hi Dan,
On the F-4 and the F-6 IH mags the cond is under the housing cover. To get to the cond. you must carefully remove the magnet and put a piece of metal across it as a keeper or set it on a metal work bench. Then remove the upper magneto housing cover. There you will find the cond. The E4A magnetos that were used on the 10-20 tractors and others had the cond. as part of the armature.

Hi Dan,
I use a coil and cond. tester that I own. A good small engine shop should have a tester. If you have it out already have it tested just to find out if it was part of the problem. Do not put it back in. Buy a new one from your IH dealer or tractor supply house. Old cond. can test good one week and fall apart the next.
