It looks like this accessory could be the ticket to get your weak magneto back up to snuff!
I presume this part goes on the front between the front of the timing gear cover and the pulley?
Can anyone talk about experience with this item?
Norm, you are most correct sir!
James, I would also like to hear from anyone that has any experience with this item too.
BTW: the Patent number is 1489185
I would love to have one of these...I know someone could make these for us to try out as an easy fix till someone had the funds to do the motor right...
Lang's has 'em
part #3030SHIM $20 Exact copy of that part. You size it by grinding down the face. Bolts to front of the block behind the crank pulley
Nope, haven't used one.
I have the same one in picture on a shelf next to me, thought I had couple more. This one came off an engine I tore down several years ago, must have worked as it shows pulley wear

Lang's carries them, they do work if your magnets are not weak or field is not broken.
