    What year / model Waterwitch?
    Eisemann magneto? Model number?

    Not sure I have the info, but it might help someone get you the info.

    Ahoy Buccaneer,

    I don’t know yet what motor I have.

    Waterwitch written is as one word. The decal on top of the flywheel is pretty much unreadable.
    It’s a single cylinder. The gas tank fuel cap is centered on the rear of the tank.

    The mag plate is made by WICO
    I was hoping that all models shared a common condenser.

    As soon as I figure out how to keep my pictures under 2.44 MB I’ll post them.

    Thanks

    Is it similar to one of these 1940 models?

    Regarding resizing, you can change your digital camera settings, or
    change the size in Windows Paint program.
    If you’re doing your photography via Smartphone, you’re on
    your own, lol.

    Wico mag? Take a look at the old condenser and there should be a number stamped on the end of it. If you can see it, post it and I’ll see what I can find.

    Are you sure it’s a Wico mag, and not an Eisemann?

    There should be a model number stamped somewhere. Either on the rope sheave or on the crankcase and probably starts with 571.XX.

    Waterwitches were built by several manufacturers so depending on the model, it could have either a Wico or an Eisemann magneto on it.

    When in doubt , go with 0.22 mf condenser. This will work in most all applications. Try it, see if you get good spark.. no harm.
