An absolute treasure trove of information about the Bendix and Slick magnetos used on virtually all piston aircraft engines. The book covers everything you could possibly want to know about how your aircraft ignition system works. It describes the functions of the magneto coil, rotor, capacitor, points, P-lead, impulse coupling, and ignition harness. Learn what "E" gap means and why it's so important.
Content includes the difference between internal magneto timing and magneto-to-engine timing, what "bumping" the magneto means, how altitude and temperature affect the magneto, what the voltage and energy requirements are for reliable ignition, and how spark plug leads and radio noise filters may reduce magneto output.
Author John Schwaner reviews all of the different models of Bendix and Slick magnetos and describes their strengths and weaknesses. He shows you how to choose the best mag for your type of flying including which mag is best for high altitude, ease of maintenance, low radio noise. He explains what to look for during the preflight mag check and how to troubleshoot starting problems and engine roughness. Recommendations for preventative magneto maintenance are set forth in great detail. Listings and discussions of ADs and service bulletins for all Bendix and Slick models are included.
