How do you time the magneto?
place the magnet on the flywheel in front of magneto and place a buisness card between flywheel and magneto and tighten magneto down.......remove buisness card..
A magneto is an electrical power generating device which operates without the need for a battery to energize the coils. A magneto uses permanent magnets to induce an electrical current, which is "pulsed" Direct Current [DC]. These pulses are controlled [by "points" in the "old" days] to "time" the pulses to the coil primary winding coil, which the creates the high voltage ignition pulse which is delivered to the spark plug[s].
Think logically about this, Iron man is a guy in a super advance metal suit hence the name Iron Man, even though its a strange metallic alloy. Magneto controls metal . . . . Magneto would crush Iron man and turn him inside out. Now I am not exactly positive on if Iron Man's suit would be controlled by Magneto but his missiles and bullets at least would thus in the very least all his…
I have been rebuilding a 4 stroke Tecumseh engine and I was wandering just what does a condenser do in the ignition system? The condenser stores the charge that the magneto makes until it is time for the spark plug to fire. The points control how long the magneto charges the coil and they also give the signal to the fire the plug.
