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.

Magneto as viewed from the rear. Note the two mounting bolts which secure it to the timing gear cover:

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.

Asking $485.00

Happy to answer questions or provide other photos upon request.

Cliff

Is it a standard front plate that was modified?

Chadwick,

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.
