It wasn’t that long ago that the Slick magneto was considered a “throw away” magneto. When the engine reached TBO, the Slick magnetos were discarded and replaced with new.
Fast forward to 2024 and there are now four magneto (4) options available and Champion is no longer the dominant manufacturer. Hartzell Engine Tech is excited to announce the POWERUP magneto. This technologically superior magneto is now available in PMA New, Premiere Overhaul, and Value Overhaul conditions.
The table below explains the differences in work scopes allowing you to choose your work scope, warranty, and price.
