Does anyone have an opinion, good or bad, about putting a magneto into a 57 FLH? I have questions as to what brand has worked the best as far as installation, starting and performance. My bike has STD heads, dual plugs, Andrews A grind cam, dual exhaust and I am still running 6 volts.

I ran a Mag, a Fairbanks/Morse for about 5 yrs. and loved it but they don't like the cold weather. I am putting another in now on a rebuild. The timing is the main thing you might have to grind off the relay mount on the case Also I would consider going to 12 Volt. Its a very strong spark and will like the dual plugged heads.
The parts are interchangabe from the mags, Morse/Fairbanks/Hunt etc. All older ones used the same coil and points and there bodies and caps are interchangable also, not sure but 12 Volt is not a must can run 6V
