Stumbled across this picture while I was looking for parts online. I looked at the pic and thought..what a beautiful A!.....Then I noticed the plastic bag over the magneto :lol: and I immediately thought of this post....Looks like others are having "Moisture" problems..

Haha that's so weird, I wonder why that person bothered? Especially since it looks like a show/trailer queen anyway lol

I took mine off, dried it and replaced the gaskets. I'm absolutely serious when I say this, everyone should take a look at the condition of the gaskets on their magnetos. Whether it be a Cub, Super A, H or whatever. If you have at least one gasket that is crap, chances are that the rest are just as bad. They are cheap and easy to replace, and re-timing the governor is really simple. It rained all day today and with the new gaskets on there I had ZERO problems with it. I popped the coil cover just to check and its as dry as a bone.

Many times its the little things that can cause such a fuss.

When I take my magneto powered tractors to a show where they will set out overnight, possibly in a rain I wrap the magnetos also. I have one that sets under a lean too rather than inside the shed, which the magneto stays wrapped all the time. it starts much better that way.
