IHC Magneto Parts



IHC's earliest mags were supplied by either Webster or Motsinger. The Motszinger Autosparker was a friction drive unit that ran off the flywheel. It was used primarily on larger engines. The Milton-Webster, and later the Webster, was a complete magneto/igniter unit that bolted onto the engine. It was timed to the ignition and performed far better. IHC used Webster mags for many years, and even offered them in place of their own mags in Canada for quite some time.

IHC got into the mag buisiness of making their own mags by buying the Accurate Engineering Company. They were making the low-tension rotary mags for their Mogul line of stationary engines at the time (and probably for a lot of other people too.) IHC's first task was to change the artwork on the tags to indicate that they made the mag. Other that the name on the tag, little changed on the mags after the buyout, and most if not all parts are interchangeable. They eventually migrated from bronze bodies and bearing plates to pot metal, but in all fairness, Accurate would have done it on their own. I rarely see cracked pot-metal bodies on these mags. I do see stripped mounting threads. I can usually repair these. Send me the body and I can rebuild the base as good as or better than new.

Early IHC high-tension mags for tractors were made by K-W and later Splitdorf. IHC's first high-tension mag of their own design, was the E-4A. It was a knockoff of the Bosch DU-4 (the industry standard at the time) and proved to be a darn good mag for the time. While I don't list many parts for these mags, they are easily rebuilt. I rebuild condensers and rewind coils for these mags. Points can usually be resurfaced. I also have bearings.

IHC replaced the E4A with an inductor-style mag, the F4. It also proved to be quite reliable and was much easier and cheaper to repair. The H4 mag replaced the F4 mag, and a single cylinder version, the H1 mag, was used on type LA stationary engines. Their last mag, the J4 was an attempt to share many of the parts between their mags and their battery distributors. These later mags are very reliable and easily rebuilt. For some reason, IHC started using Wico mags on their type "LB" engines. First, the type AH-1, and later the rare H-1. Parts for these mags are found on the
Wico Magneto Parts page. These are most of the parts available for these tractor and stationary engine (LA & LB) mags. I grew up with these mags on the tractors on my family farm. Many other parts are avaliable. Please call, write, or e-mail with requests. It is also quite common to find Wico, Bosch, or F-M mags on these tractors. Look on those respective pages for those parts.

I can replace bearings, rewind coils and rebuild the mounting plates on IHC (and other) low tension mags. I will also have the gears (and maybe bearing plates) real soon. Look for Webster parts in the
Webster section. For the Motszinger, I can supply coils and nameplates.

These are most of the parts for IHC tractor mags and stationary engine (LA & LB) mags. I grew up with these mags on the tractors on my family farm. Many other parts are avaliable. Please call, write, or e-mail with requests.
