Champion Aerospace to maintain high standards in their products has released a new updated manual for Slick Magneto by Champion. L-1363G manual provides many updates to the previous manual but there are three important updates for the service of Slick Magnetos. The first update that is important to Slick users is the time before overhaul of the magnetos has changed. Previously, the Slick Magnetos TBO was the same as that of the engine but now there is a 12-year overhaul requirement. The second change has to do with the required inspection of pressurized magnetos. Slick Magnetos that are pressurized must be inspected at 250 hour now. The last change is the testing procedure of the capacitor. The manual used to only allow for the testing of the capacitor with a MIT410-EN megger. Now the manual allows for testing the capacitor with equivalent test equipment to the MIT410-EN megger. This allows…

Overhaul and Factory Overhaul are terms commonly used in Aviation to refer to the condition of a part. People in the Aviation industry often use these words interchangeably; it is easy to see the parts as the same and generally the overhaul is less expensive. Often people are left asking, “why should I get a Factory Overhauled unit when an overhauled is the same for less?”. The two terms are different because of the type of work performed. An Overhaul means that a part is disassembled and examined, parts are replaced as necessary according to the manufacturer’s overhaul manual. To consider a part in Factory Overhauled condition it must be brought back to factory new specifications as per the manufacturer. Contrasting the two definitions highlights the disparity between Factory Overhauled and Overhauled. The differences between a Factory Overhauled and Overhauled Slick magneto also shows how the two work processes will…

Here at Quality Aircraft Accessories, we specialize in aircraft magnetos and aircraft magneto service. We take pride in our wide breadth of knowledge surrounding aircraft parts and thought we'd share some of that expertise to provide a better understanding of just what an aircraft magneto is and how one works.   An aircraft magneto is an engine driven electrical generator that uses permanent magnets and coils to produce high voltage to fire the aircraft spark plugs. Aircraft magnetos are used in piston aircraft engines and known for their simplicity and reliability. Often sold in pairs, or as a dual magneto, this compact device requires no external electrical source to operate.   You can learn more about a dual magneto by clicking here.   Here's how an aircraft magneto works. Aircraft piston engines are designed with two independent ignition systems. This is made up of two aircraft spark plugs per cylinder…
