Default Wico Model C on John Deere B

Impulse on catches once in a while when out and on the bench. The levers look ok but the catch for them looks very worn. Can this be repaired or replaced? Thanks for any help. Bill

The "catch" you mention is on that adjustable plate in the back of the mag. Yes it can be changed with a good one. You will need to take the impulse / drive out and then the 4 screws that hold the plate in place. Make sure you make note of where the plate is rotated to so you make sure the impulse timing doesn't change from where you have it currently.

Thanks Kelly, do most mag repair guys carry the plate or need to go to a large repair shop? Thanks again for your help. Bill
