Default 1916 Fairbanks Morse 3HP Magneto I.D.

I recently came across a 1916 3HP Fairbanks Morse throttle engine ser#182549. The engine is complete with everything except the magneto, drive gear, mounting plate and crank cover. The engine is free and fired 2 times in 10*f weather on a low tension coil and 6v battery on starting fluid. In looking on the internet, it looks like the Sumter #22 was for the 6HP version. I can not locate anything that specifically states what magneto belongs on this engine.

Does anyone have a parts catalog that might list what came on this engine?

Thanks....

The 3&6 Hp. use the sumpter 12. I think the 22 will work also? Bob

Thank you for your responce Bob.

I have seen posts of people having a 12 or a 22 on these engines and wasn't sure what it was suppose to have. Being a Stationary Engineer, i prefer to restore back to OEM as much as possible. I had a line on both a 12 and a 22 but didn't want to tie up restoration funds if I didn't have to. Considering the difficulty in locating parts for these older engines, i wouldn't mind spending the extra money just to have all the bases covered. I figured if nothing else, I would use the second one as a pattern piece and make a few and sell them. I eventually want to get a 1 1/2 hp and 10 hp models also, but need to get this one started first....lol
