Note: New installation requires a harness, and possibly a gear, depending on the application (See Accessories). Verify requirements before ordering. If you are replacing a NON-IMPULSE magneto you can re-use the manufacturer's ignition drive gear from the old magneto. If you are replacing an IMPULSE magneto, those gears are a different style and cannot be re-used with the E-Mag and a Lycoming (or Superior) gear must be purchased.
Lycoming 68C19622 gear: Part # 07-02011
Superior SL68C19622 gear: Part # 08-11837
Of all the E-MAG innovations, the self-powering capability of the "P" Model is the most significant. It solves the largest single issue faced by all electronic ignitions - their need for an uninterruptible power supply.
Power back-up strategies that a) compromise ignition effectiveness, b) solve only half the problem, or c) require additional maintenance are less than ideal. Next-Generation ignitions need a better solution. So what does a next-generation electrical back-up need to do?
The P Model Built-In Alternator
Installing back-up batteries, together with switching circuits, to A) engage the back-up battery when needed, and possibly B) keep the back-up battery charged. This solution:
Estimated Time: 2-4 Hours
1. Install Drive Gear: Recover the non-impulse drive gear from your old mag and install it on your E-MAG. If you don't have a suitable drive gear, E-MAG can provide one.
2. Connect Control Leads & Harness:
3. Install & Set Timing with Quick-Set TM:
Note: You can set timing on two E-MAGs in exactly the same way in exactly the same amount of time - 30 to 60 seconds.
I have 2 E-Mags running on an IO-360. Initial installation requires some patience, but great factory support. Advise installing a small 12v Li battery for starting and a recharging connection somewhere (jack on panel) to keep charged every couple of months. A cold weather start will draw main battery down too far for E-Mags so you need a tiny 12v battery dedicated with switch and 3A fuse. After 600 hours I start up in 2 revolutions every time. Never a problem. Simple timing procedure always impresses A&P.
Good price, quick, and good tracking.
This is a great product, but installation is more involved than is seams if you are replacing magnetos on a flying plane. You will likely need to add two switch’s to your panel, and if you are replacing an impulse magneto you need to replace the studs. Getting the correct fittings and hoses to connect the manafild pressure hoses can be a small project if you want to do it right. The kit comes with silicone rubber tubing.
Easy to install and time. Very reliable for 8 years. Runs better on one -mag than on 2 regular mags. I have two on my 0-360. No backup battery power needed with the built in alternator in the p-mag. I wish they were certified, too. I would put them on my J-35.
Supper simple to install. Flawless performance. Use the auto plugs, aircraft plugs can not be gapped without breaking.
If you are replacing a Bendix Mag be aware you need to purchase the Slick mounting kit (K-3784) in order to mount the PMAG to your engine. Without these clamps you cant install the PMAG.

There is no application chart for this item with specific engine listings. However, per the manufacturer, it will work for most 4 cylinder Lycomings except dual single pad models, which would be known if that is the type you had.
Per the supplier: You'll want/need to use our harness with auto plugs. We stopped offering an aircraft harness back in 2010.
Per the supplier: No, you cannot use your old magneto harness or aircraft plugs.
Per the supplier: Currently, we only have ignitions for experimentals.
Per the manufacturer, their unit provides a safe amount of voltage for the ignition system.
Yes, it does.
The gear on an impulse type magneto will not work with this unit. You will need a non-impulse type gear (and shorter mounting studs) for each E-MAG install.
Yes. This will replace a slick mag.
This ships in a 12" x 8" x 8" box weighing about 4.25 lbs.
The gears on yoour slicks should work fine as long as they are still in good condition.
