WICO Magneto, Model X (Spec XVS-2331) that was installed on Popeye when he moved to Virginia.
This magneto has an inductive coupler which provides a great hot spark even if hand cranking the car. I believe it has automatic spark advance built in (the spark advance lever was not connected to this unit but it ran well at low or high speeds).
First picture is from the front. The magneto mounts to the timing gear cover, which is included:
Also pictured above is the gear drive.

This is what it looked like when mounted on Popeye:
Installation requires that about 1" of the camshaft be removed in order to install the drive gear. I will include the modified camshaft if buyer desires.
I am not sure how much shipping will be. It's a fairly heavy unit. I will contribute the first $25 toward shipping costs, buyer makes up the balance.
Happy to answer questions or provide other photos upon request.
Is it a standard front plate that was modified?
The plate is standard, only modifications are the two holes drilled to mount the magneto.
I originally thought I'd re-use the same plate, just block the two holes. I later decided to replace it and offer the modified plate with the magneto.
Cliff, I will take the magneto. I can do Paypal, personal check or what ever works with you. I am a member of MTFCA and the Tin Lizzies of Albuquerque. Let me know how you want to proceed with the deal. Thanks, Art Gebeau. I'm in Milan NM zip code is 87021.
Thanks Art, I will hold for you. Got your PM.
Will see what shipping charges will be this weekend and be back to you via email.
