Default Webster magneto

Hi New member here looking for advice. We have a powell engine and wonder what type of magneto we need and would it be a webster. Really appreciate help with this as we are not getting very far with our search..

Yes its a Webster Tripolar Magneto

The ones used on Powells usually had Powell stamped into the brass band that goes over the top of the magnet but as long as its a webster tripolar it will be fine

May be obvious..but you will need to get one with the correct stud size and centres.

No, the later style Webster Tripolars will not fit the Powell, but the earlier ones will be OK.
