Son Of Mini Mag


I lost the tech sheet for my Mallory Mini Mag. Would anyone have one they could make me a copy of. I'll pay for my stupidity.

You can tell if you had to much to drink if you are stopped for speeding in you rod by the Coast Guard.
Thanks for help.

tech sheet

Doc here,

Have you tried a Goggle search under Mallory Mini Mag yet? You SHOULD be able to find a down-loadable pdf out there.

Or at least, a tech hotline to Mallory products where you can order a set.

Hope it helps!

Doc

feel like gettin
After many hours of searching the web ,talking to dealers and manufacturers, I have come to this conclusion concerning Mallory, vertex and other vintage magnetos. There are no parts or service available. No one will work on them. If you do find one that works, carry a distributor with you because it's only a matter of time before you will be walking.
Thanks for the reply Doc

I found a tech sheet on the bay yesterday. I would still like to find some spare components such as coil, points, cap, rotor and a place to get the magnets rejuvinated. The last seems to be the downfall of this unit. Apparently needs to be done at least once a year to maintain peak performance. Afterall, this unit is close to 40 years old and I don't walk near as well as I did the last time I ran this one. 1965
I have tried the bench test (hand on top turn the shaft) and my hair is no frizzier than normal.
Just got another one and it doesn't have any usable components in it but will make a great wall hanger.
You are going to fast if the flames on the fenders are from re-entry

Mag Rebuild

Doc here,

I'm not too sure how much money you want to spend on this project...but you might try a local motor rewinder for re-magnetizing the magnets...or new magnets ,which will probably be a custom cut...($$$) But I should think they should be able to handle it.

The rest of the stuff, you should be able to find maybe with the exception of the coil..

You might consider modification of a new, available, coil unit to work with your unit...

Again..It's all a matter of what ya want to spend on the project..I assume it's a retro unit and you want to stay as "Period" as possible.

Doc

My car(27 T coupe) was built in the late 50s early 60s and I am trying to stay original type as far as performance and general look is concerned, but I am upgrading in the safety dept. Let the horror begin - four wheel discs , real shocks, stabilisers and a third brake light. You'd love the brake light. Late 20s stuff,It has a little lantern that hangs from the light and lights up and wigwags when you step on the brakes.
Anyhoo, I found a guy who says he can refurbish the coil if all that is wrong is the cracked insulation. Will keep you posted as I'm not the only one with this problem. Same guy will try the magnets if I do the dis and re assembly.
Local NAPA has a set of points and condenser that might work with a little modification.
The cap, rotor and contact are another story. I can probably reproduce the rotor and contact by resin cast process. The cap however is beyond my skills and to farm it out would probably go well into the OMG! ARE YOU SERIOUS! range. But then on the other hand , there might be enough demand to make it worthwhile. Going to put some more time and a little more $ in it. Then?????
I"ve already spent more than I had planned for the whole project and the missus is starting to object. We did take it for a spin last Sat. and she grinned like a teenager with a beer the whole ride.


You're going to fast if you weren't bald when you started
