I'm in the process of getting my 47 cub running. Original engine is stuck. It's 6V with mag. I've swapped the engine out. New engine is 12V. I plan on taking mag off stuck engine and using it. I've never used a mag before. Anything I should be aware of when I remove it from the stuck engine? I will rotate good engine to TDC on #1 before removing distributor. Stuck engine won't be TDC when I remove mag. What position should I rotate mag to before installing? Any and all advice is appreciated
thomas , if you need some hands on help, i can head up there one weekend. i have two mag cubs and have been very happy with them. they are hand crank cubs ( thanks to rick spivey) . jim and bill have got you headed in the right direction. coppersmythe............................................just dont turn the mag by hand in the normal direction, rick feels like it can damage the coil if done too much

Now Eugene I hadn't even considered that. That's a right good idea. See what can happen when you ask for advice even though you already think you know what you're doing?
