Fairbanks Morse Magneto Parts

Fairbanks Morse made a lot of mags for a lot of different engines. They got started rather late in the mag business with their first mag being the type R rotary mag for their type Z engines. Though I don't list them here, I can get the coils rewound and will be making leadout towers shortly. Gears will also be coming soon.

Before the type R, FM bought a number of different mags, the most popular being the AB33 & the AB34. These were made by American Bosch and are listed here mainly because they were used exclusively on Fairbanks Morse engines. I can get coils rewound, and rebuild condensers for you. I can also make other parts as needed. I cannot get point disks. I can convert DU-4 and other similar ones into AB33, you must send it to me. When installing lead-out towers on AB34 mags, the mounting holes must be slightly elongated. I can also replace bearings on AB33 and AB34 mags. Please inquire for details.

The remainder of the Fairbanks Morse mags were rotary mags with permanent magnets in the rotor (except the flywheel mags.) These mags were used on a wide range of engines and tractors both as original equipment and as aftermarket replacements. Over the years, F-M made many different modelsWhen ordering parts, it is best to give me the actual mag model number from the tag so I can check my parts list. I can get most any part, far more than listed here, so call, e-mail, or write with needs.
