Reduced weight and still some for low
I would think that it would shake like crazy!
If the magnets are the same weight and they're evenly distributed, why would it be any less balanced than with all the magnets in place?
I can see the advantage over no magnets, not sure there's any advantage over a full set.
What is the problem that this solution rectifies?
John, most speedsters remove the magnets and use a distributor. Removing the mass from the flywheel improves the acceleration, but it is much easier to stall when moving off. I would suspect that removing magnets would reduce the power of the magneto, which is marginal at best in most engines, so the idea may have very limited utility. Either remove them all and use a distributor and battery or fix the magneto and use the Ford coils.
No mag ring used ,removing all magnets [too light] ,like this I think it gives me some more take off [low] and less weight on the crank
Moves oil ,sort of best ..I think ?
I posted to see what the guys who are in the know think.
Thank you all for the input
Here is an earlier post on removing magnets.
If running a speedster, light flywheel is a benefit. Removed coil ring, magnets, no ring gear, no slingers or alum magnet spacers.
The speed up after going into high is better. Did that on my speedster years ago, platform body, lightweight, and T got up to speed quickly. Low speed torque wasn't needed with such a light body.
