An in-car FLYWHEEL MAGNET CHARGE TOOL design and a SLIP-INTO COILS MAGNET CHARGE TOOL design are available.
A portion of 98 Color photographs, 2 Engineering Drawings and 5 pages of instructions describe the FLYWHEEL CHARGE tool creation, for use in a vehicle or on a table, from coil winding through flywheel balancing. This tool charged, on a bench, a very early flywheel with small magnets that held 229 pounds total.
Most of the 98 Color photographs, 8 Engineering Drawings and 16 pages of instructions describe the SLIP-INTO COILS CHARGE tool creation, for use on single magnets on a table, from coil winding through flywheel balancing. This tool charged 16 magnets for my Model T that held 248 pounds. The instructions start with brass screw removal and two back-up methods, why you should not remove the magnets for just replacing the ring gear, or better, rotate the ring gear to an unworn area, to testing if desired, and through flywheel balancing.
SLIP-INTO COILS MAGNET CHARGE TOOL
Single uninstalled magnets 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, wound from a 50 foot spool each 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.
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 BAR is machined with 10 degree angles to match a perfect magnet. The CHARGE BAR steel between the angles is machined away, forcing the magnetic flux to pass through every molecule of the magnet end. 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. 23 pages of instructions are provided.
FLYWHEEL MAGNET CHARGE TOOL
Small magnets (0.442 x 0.625 = 0.276 sq. in.), still on an old flywheel, 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 MAGNET CHARGE TOOL having two 255 turn coils, each wound on 5/8 in. dia. steel rods, from 84 feet each 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.
PHOTO 5, FLYWHEEL CHARGE tool weighs 4.4 pounds. Use a hiking compass to locate a magnet North Pole that the red needle points toward. Hold the green taped coil rod end on the magnet North Pole and the other coil rod end on the magnet South 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. Rotate the charger and charge the next magnet. If you accidentally 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 5 quart pail until the pail drops 1/2 inch to wood on an inverted 5 gallon plastic paint pail. Two 1 pound coffee cans replace the last weight that caused the drop. A 3/8 in. dia. stream of water is poured into the coffee cans, from a small household plant water jug until the pail drops. A 1 inch diameter POLE SEEKING ROD snaps to the poles where the magnetic flux is induced from the magnet side into the magneto coil ring. The pin's length is easily centered with thumb and forefinger for equal end attraction. A hook, that holds the 5 gallon pail, 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 weight 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, shown in photos, 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 had 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 while driving. 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. There are 7 spread sheet documents, including test results of 296 magnets in color tables. Multiple computer formats are provided.

Repeat for more photos. You can up load several but only three will show till final posting.
I sure would like to read that whole thing...maybe if I print it in larger letters.
Max, it looks like you have mastered photos.
