Nigel,
I know the engine you are referring to, It is a 1.5 Plug Oscillator Z engine made for 6 months back in 1919, just before the AB33 equipped "ZA" came out, as far as throttle governed Fairbanks engines go this is a pretty rare engine. I have an original parts list I could copy for you, This engine uses the same mag at a later Headless Z (1918) would use with a different base, I think.
Do you have any pictures?
~ Jonathan

Nigel,
The only suggestion I can make is send it to a Magneto repair place. The place I deal with here in the USA, is Mark's Magneto Service of Colchester, CT. He Repairs both Mags and Ignitors. That would be your best bet, as for parts availability They are really rare around here. This parts list is the only thing I have ever seen which covers this engine.

Hi Nigel. I have been watching this thread and hoping someone would provide you with a picture. I have an engine like yours. It is all together and I am not anxious to take it apart, but if you need it, I will take the ignitor off and send some pictures. Ron.
