Any thing special on the PR's with two outlets/outputs ? As far as wiring? These were used on the Ottawa twins. I know the brass bands are almost impossible to find. Thanks

No -- noting special. The coils are set up with a post on each side . On the single out put mag the high tension wire comes out with a insulated button on one side and the terminal on the other side goes to ground. On the double out put model you have a insulated button on both sides . The electrical charge leaves the coil -- goes into the wire to the spark plug and into the casting of the engine --- then believe it or not the electrical charge jumps the gap in the second plug and goes into the wire on the other side -- returning to the mag at the insulated button on the other side of the mag. Notably both plugs fire at the same time .You should be able to get a brass band with double button holders from a mag guy.

The PR mag uses individual side plates and a top cover instead of the single band like the EK. The bakelite tower is riveted to the brass plate and can fit either side. If nothing else, you could "borrow" the bakelite tower from an OC and make the second side plate for your PR.
