Roger thanks for the pictures it helps. can you give me the numbers on that mag? My engine is very similar to yours, set up a little different and the engine mounts are also different. I was told by someone that waterman made engines for the thrall- fishback company maybe that's why they have a close resemble.

thanks Aime

My arrow mag says Bosch BA2ED-19 with a clockwise rotation, on the bottom it is stamped 61433
on the end of one of the mounting feet it is stamped 3255296
I will add 2 pictures of the mag back at the other link is a few minutes

Aime,

You could also try posting a wanted ad in our classifieds.

There are also a number of companies that specialize in old magnetos.... some of them advertise in GAS ENGINE MAGAZINE.

Regards,
Andrew
