Hello members , I am very confused, I am going to install a distributor in my 1919, I was going to remove the mag should I leave the magnets on the flywheel to provide splashing? Am I better off with an outside oil line? the engine has a large scoop internal line now . I plan on drilling and installing scoops on the rods, grooving the babbitts . Thank you Tony

Tony,

Unless you have an auxiliary transmission (a ratio between Ford low and high) or a very light car like a speedster, you had probably better leave the magnets on for flywheel inertia - so I am told.

If the magnets are not going to be fuctional, it would be nice to loose the weight and put on one of the aftermarket splash units that bolts onto the flywheel. I think the outside oil line is always a good idea no matter what is done to the mag components. Gets more oil up front so the rods can dip into something.

Seth has a point there. The only cars I have been around with mag rings removed were light speedsters. Lets hear from somebody who has had this experience. Did it matter on a heavier car to loose the magnets?

Erich
