Default 1924 2hp Jaeger Help Needed

I just bought a WICO EK Mag and rocker arm for my 2hp Jaeger and it looks like the Latch and Drive Spring are not linning up to hit the rocker tip. Or from the pictures am I missing some part?

Looks like you are missing the coil spring that holds the trip rod up to engage the latch. Ther should be a recess in the trip assembly foor the spring. When adjusted properly with a piece of metal 3/32" thick between the magneto armature and coil cores, the rod should engage the latch by only 1/32" or so. Adjust the engagement with the screw above the trip rod.

Thanks Tom, I found it. Now I need to find out where to get a spring to fit.
Any clues as to where I can purchase one?

I don't think that spring is a critical one, so I would go to the local True Value or ACE Hardware store and try to find one that would work. It needs to be a good fit in the hole, and enough strength to hold the trip rod up to engage the latch. As I recall, the length is 1" or less. The other two springs are critical to the proper function of the mag.
