Picked up two magnetos today. How can i tell if its sportster or bigtwin?


  1. Found this on a forum a while back...

    The top of the magnetos or main body and internals should be the same. I believe the two major manufacturers today are Morris Magneto in New Jersey and Joe Hunt Magnetos in California. The obvious differances between the Sportsters and Big twin are the bottom mounting shafts. Go to www.huntmagnetos.com They should be able to convert it for you. When you say Cheap do you mean under $200.00 bucks?? Considering that a new magneto goes for over $700.00 it is worth while to call Hunt and get some prices on converting it to a Sportster base. Let us know how you make out. :smoke Hrdly
