  1. As to the question of using a Bosch mag. iIt can start the car on the hand crank but it is important to wind the coil to generate more voltage a lower RPM.
  2. There is not much to go wrong in the magneto. The coil is stationary and the pole pieces rotate on each side of it. The points and the insulators in the right places need to be checked. You can check the output voltage by running it with a drill motor and checking the voltage with an analog volt meter on the AC scale. It only puts out about 1/12 to 2 volts. I suspect the dash coil id the issue. They are special to this mag because the voltage is low but you don't want to get in the middle of the spark and ground because they can through a big spark is all is right with the mag and coil.
