    I think Wico also makes one that will work and it a lot easier to get parts for than the Eisemann. Most mag places charge you a lot for the Eismann parts.

    I found that after I posted on the impulse on the pony mag for the Eisemann. I have two both with impulse, But they are for gas machines.

    Are the magneto bearings completely shot? Or does it spin over smooth and normal like except for the magnetic flux, which I think you are referring to as "compression?" If the main bearings are out of the pony, the crankshaft jumping up and down will hammer out the cam bearings which in turn hammer h*** out of the magneto. Other than that, I don't know what the "clicking" is. You just have to go into it and look.

    If you have to swap mags, consider a Bosch or Cat/Bosch. Lots of people consider them the best that Cat used.

    Where are you located? There's a very good rebuilder here in Oregon.

    I had my Wico rebuilt over a year ago and the mag dealer said that Wico still offers a new Mag to fit my D4 7U. Wico is a very easy fit for the 7U. The Eisemann mag takes up all the magneto's available room with very little room left over for the spark plug wires. Cleaning the points, and sometimes also replacing the condenser too, usually brings most mags back to life. My Wico had a cracked cap that killed it. It is a very hot mag now.
