Single uninstalled magnets for installation in my Model T Ford held weights of 15.515 pounds average, 17.864 pounds max. 14.180 pounds min., and 248.234 pounds total after charging in two SLIP-INTO 144 turn COILS, each wound from 50 foot spools of #14 solid, thin insulated, Home Depot house wire, parallel powered by a $40 Harbor Freight, circuit breaker protected, battery charger in the 55 amp start mode.
Small magnets, still on an old flywheel (0.442 x 0.625 = 0.276 sq. in.), with brass cylinder spacers held weights of 14.320 pounds average, 16.106 pounds max., 11.206 pounds min., and 229.120 pounds total after charging by the FLYWHEEL CHARGER having two 255 turn coils, each wound on 5/8 in. dia. steel rods from 84 feet of #14 solid, thin insulated, Home Depot house wire, parallel powered as above. The wire length was simply the wire remaining on a 500 foot spool.
SLIP-INTO COILS: PHOTO 1, COIL ENDS (resting) ON CHARGE BAR shows vertical windings inside the magnet legs to maximize the turns. Magnetic flux generated is proportional to amperes of current times turns, i.e. ampere turns. The end of each layer returns to the coil big end to restart the next layer to nest the wire into the depression between the previous two turns, again maximizing the turns. The turns are held together by the overlapping winding technique and by Super Glue Liquid. Super Glue Gel secures the last turn and the right angle bends. The coils are air breathing and do not get hot, but the battery charger clamp does. The charge bars are machined with 10 degree angles to match a perfect magnet. The steel between the angles is machined away, forcing the magnetic flux to pass through every molecule of the magnet. The coil layer restart wire binds the wire itself. The worst case short wide and long narrow magnets are accommodated with room for only one more turn which would be unsupported, and thus not incorporated.
FLYWHEEL CHARGER: PHOTO 5, FLYWHEEL CHARGER weighs 4.4 pounds. Use a hiking compass to locate a magnet North Pole that the red needle points toward. Hold the tool to the magnet with the green taped coil on the North Pole. With the red charger lead previously clamped on the tool's 1 foot flexible red wire, clamp the black charger clamp to the only exposed brass nut for one second. The tool will yank itself into alignment. Rotate the charger and charge the next magnet. If you reverse charge a magnet, just correct it and recharge the adjacent magnets. Do not use this tool to charge magnets that are not on a flywheel. It decreased the magnetism in the individual magnets described above.
TESTING SEPARATE MAGNETS & FLYWHEEL MAGNETS ON A TABLE
Weights are added to a pail until the pail drops 1/2 inch to wood on an inverted 5 gallon plastic paint pail. The last weight is replaced by two 1 pound coffee cans. A 3/8 in. dia. stream of water is poured into the coffee cans until the pail drops. A 1 inch diameter POLE SEEKING ROD snaps to the poles where the magnetic flux is induced from the side into the magneto coil ring. The pin's length is easily centered with thumb and a finger for equal end attraction. A hook is retained in a lubricated groove. Sometimes one end will slide to better align with the pole as water is added. The Harbor Freight Tools Digital Scale limit is 11 pounds. Weigh some of the weights and water, then the pail with most of the weights. Add these numbers and the Pole Seeking Rod weight. I use a Texas Instruments TI-503SV calculator. The magnaflux powder and pepper shaker are unnecessary. Hold a magnet with the bend on a wood pencil and tap with brass or copper every half inch. A dull tone is a cracked magnet. Sandblasting 293 magnets for inspection only verified cracks that tapping detected.
Benefits of High Magnetic Charge
Higher magnetic charge increases the magneto output voltage. A higher voltage sine wave will last longer before crossing the minimum threshold voltage required by the coils to fire a spark plug. This will reduce the no response dead zone in spark advance. When starting the engine on magneto, spark plugs will fire at lower RPM resulting from increased voltage.
If you are in the contiguous USA, for a Compact Disk (CD), send a $5 bill to MAX TREECE, 5052 WINDSOR DR., SAN DIEGO, CA 92109-1341. The detail presented therein can save a lot of time and grief. The 14 engineering drawings are in pdf and will print on any computer with legal size paper. The 98 color photos will print on any computer. There are 21 pages of instructions for the SLIP-INTO COILS. and 6 pages for the FLYWHEEL CHARGER. There are 7 spread sheet documents including test results of 296 magnets in color. Multiple formats are provided.
Can the flywheel recharge be done in the car with transmission cover removed ?
How would the charger align itself correctly to the proper magnet polarity ?
Sorry if I missed this point.
