I am rebuilding my magneto and when I removed the magnets I noticed that the bolts do not have holes in the heads for wire tying. Are these OK to reuse?

The bolts that go in the "V" of the magnet don't have holes for safety wiring. Just tighten to 30 ft-lb and you're ready to go.

Yes - Ford discontinued the need for the wire in later years.

The bolts in Mike Bender's video below do not have holes for safety wire either.

Mike, maybe I missed it, but what torque do you apply to those magnet base retainer bolts?
