These lightweight aircraft magnetos are being used by many new equipment manufacturers. Weigh only 3-3/4 lbs. compared to 6-1/4 lbs. for typical old style magnetos.
In early 1988, Slick discontinued the sale of re-manufactured magnetos to offer new units only.
All units carry a 12-month warranty after delivery to the user. These model magnetos are completely rebuild-able. The old 4000/4100 series magnetos and the 600 series magnetos may not be returned as an exchange unit for a new magneto of the same model. Most other Magnetos may be returned for core credit.
Drive gears are not included.
4300 series is a direct replacement for previous 4200 series Magnetos.
All Slick Magneto and harness prices shown are well below Slick Factory list price; we will beat any competitor's "Advertised Price!"
Slick harnesses come standard in red. Harnesses are available in black on a special order basis.
4370 QUALITY OVERHAULED SLICK MAG NON IMPULSED
I installed 4 on my Twin Comanche. They arrived packaged well ,cotter pin and gasket included,.once the BO was filled the installation was went smooth. I only have 1 hour of maintenance time on them but time will tell how well they work. , somewhat too early to make that determination.
When my O-320 engine was overhauled on my Grumman Cheetah in 2015 it came with rebuilt mags by this same company. Worked fine until recently when I noticed the aircraft was hard to start when hot (non-fuel injected). My IA said this is usually a failing impulse coupler (and condenser). Bought a replacement 4173R (rebuilt) and installed it and it works great and runs smooth. Of concern is that the paperwork said Overhauled when I ordered a Rebuilt. Didnt really have a choice but to install it anyway. Sure hope I didnt get an Overhauled mag when I asked (and paid for) a Rebuilt. Time will tell if this mag stays working. So far, so good.
Great Value. Easy swap. Run perfect. Nice to have the 8130s too.
Installed these after the Kelly Overhauled Magneto, failed to start the Grumman AA5. The Kellys worked fine after the plane was running, but left me stranded by the 20th start. These Champions have everything replaced, including the coil and condenser. Money better spent, in my experience.
Grateful that Spruce had in stock when no one did!! Ordered the QAA Slick 4373R. Noted that the impulse coupler was greasy with dirty grease came with FAA 8130. We ran it on the magneto bench and it operated fine. Typical Covid 19 shipping. 2 to 3 days later than expected, not Spruces fault.
Well Im back, 2.5 years later, and the 4371 impulse coupled mag only lasted 300 hours on my Cheetah/O320. I think it was the condenser, since the starts and final start were always good. Was dead two mins later at the runup. Total time: 300 hours, 660 flights, and approx 725 starts. Unacceptable. Out of warranty. Im buying a Surefly mag. Im done with the insanity of flying with two Slick mags.

The "R" in the part number just means it is overhauled. A 4371 is a left hand rotation mag.
Overhauled and rebuild magneto's share different replacement parts. When they overhaul a unit they tear down the magneto and only replace the parts that needs to be replaced. A rebuilt unit is where they replace all the parts in the magneto with brand new parts.
Per QAA: Yes, we will take a Bendix magneto as a core of a Slick.
Yes, they come with the domestic 8130.
Yes, the impulse coupling is included.
No. This is the overhauled magneto only. The harness would be purchased separately.
