I have a bit over 800 hours and 5.5 years on my Slicks and am ready to
replace with a 'new' set of rebuilt units. They are operating just fine
but I'm thinking it's a good thing to do at this point.

I have a stock Lycoming/Vans IO-540-D4A5

Can anyone share the ordering information for replacements? Best sources?

I was looking a ACS and elsewhere and it seems there are multiple part
numbers used in multiple places. Just trying to cut through the paper
storm without getting smart first.

BTW, I did get versed in teardown and maintenance when I did the
excessive point wear SB at 100 hours. I'm choosing to replace.

Thanks

Most of the usual suppliers of aircraft parts will stock overhauled mags. However, if you choose to stay with Slick, as opposed to Bendix, I would strongly consider the price delta for new Slick. Looks like extra $250-300 for a new mag over rebuilt. The irony is that overhauled Bendix mags look to be less money than overhauled Slick.

Understand. Keep in mind that IO-540s were built with Bendix mags long before conglomerate takeover of Lycoming forced the switch to Slick. Nothing wrong with Slicks that more frequent maintenance won't handle.

I want to stay with Slicks because that's what the engine came with and I have a few tools and a little experience working with them.

I want to replace them with 'rebuilt' Slick mags and not 'overhauled' Slick mags.  And I intend to get a 'core credit' for exchanging my old ones.
