cover photo

Provides information on how to identify, diagnose, dismantle and rebuild tractor magnetos. Gives step-by-step instructions for several popular magnetos.

Fix your tractor magneto. Chapters include everything you wanted to know, component measurement and testing, non-destructive dismantling, IH E4A magneto, IH F4, IF H4, Fairbanks Morse DRV2, Fairbanks J4B3, Fairbanks X4B9, Wico Series C, Case 4JMa, Bosch MRF4A322, Bosch FU4, Eisemann G4, electrical systems, voltage regulator field repair & testing, starter motors, and tractor wiring.

This is of importance to anyone who works on or builds old engines fired by magnetos instead of battery ignition system. It's loaded with pictures and nuts-and-bolts how-to for common tractor magnetos, but also touches on generators and starters.

While some modern devices are designed to be thrown away, old machines are designed to be serviced and repaired.

How To Restore Tractor Magnetos is the essential guide to farm tractor electrical systems and offers the tractor restorer all the information needed to restore, repair and diagnose magnetos. Authored by the late Neil Yerigan, who was a master of working with vintage electronics, the book comprehensively covers how magnetos function as well as how to troubleshoot and repair common problems. The fine art of non-destructive disassembly is covered in detail and is a key ingredient to keeping your magneto (and your tractor) happy and running.

Now back in print, How To Restore Tractor Magnetos includes sections on the most common magnetos, including those made by Wico, American Bosch, International Harvester, Fairbanks-Morse, Case, Eiseman and more. Also included is voltage regulator field repair and testing, electric starter motors, and wiring advice. Yerigan augments the book's technical detail with anecdotes about the trials and tribulations of day-to-day life in his state-of-the-art (for 1936) south Minneapolis electrical repair shop.
