Arrow odd Elkhart magneto

I got this odd low tension Elkhart maggy last year. It’s similar to another Elkhart I have but this one has some odd features. Base measures 3 1/8 by 3 ¾, whole thing stands about 6" tall. Center height of armature shaft is 1 ¾. There are four 5/16-18 mounting holes in a 2 x 2 pattern.. I’ve noticed there is no place for a grounding brush. On rear bearing plate there is a c’sunk hole at about 2 O’clock. Looking through the hole one can see the R and L marks on armature end cap for timing. Just under the rear bearing was a pin that was cast in place during manufacture. It got broke off during shipping. It was threaded at one end and a small brass handle screwed onto it. I’m guessing it had something to do with holding on a lead out cap? There is a copper collecting ring on end of armature shaft. I’d like to know what this lead out looked like. Also like to know what this might have been on? It had a coarse straight tooth gear pressed on the shaft but had no part numbers. I’d also like to find the missing magnet. It’s 1 ½ wide and about 5/16 thick, 4 ¾ high and 3 ½ wide on the outside.

Cheers! NICK
