I purchased that Champion Slick Magneto Maintenance kit but ended up not
using it when I got a chance to visit the closest magneto specialty shop and
watched how they do inspections and rebuilds. The major deal is not the
rebuilding, but the subsequent testing of the mags, which they do in a
special oven running the mag at a variety of speeds and, for turbo engine
mags, reduced air pressures. That specialized test equipment is quite
expensive, out of the reach of homebuilders, but it makes a big difference
in knowing that a IRAN'd or rebuilt mag is up to the task.
Just had a 500 hr. Slick 6393 mag inspection done by Aircraft Electrical
Components in Redding, CA (FAA licensed repair station for lots of
electrical stuff on airplanes) and they turned it around quickly for $275.
Better than expected...

Subject: Champion Slick Magneto Maintenance Kits - new to me
I was in the process of buying a couple of rebuilt (not overhauled) Slick
Mags to replace my 800+ hour Mags. Aircraft Spruce carries them (along with
new and overhauled).
However, my last search in ACS turned up Champion Slick Magneto Maintenance
Kits as shown here:
The hadn't noticed this as an option before but looks very attractive.
I've already fooled around with mine to comply with an earlier Service
Directive and would love to do the work myself if I can bring the Mags back
up to the rebuilt standard.
Is anyone familiar with these kits? Do they contain what is needed to bring
used mags up to the rebuilt standard? All input welcome.
