Champion Slick Magnetos make timing, installation, inspection, and maintenance simpler and more convenient.
Lift-off housing – Internal timing is not disturbed during inspections.
Simplified internal timing – Improved internal markings and the Slick E-gap tool make timing easier & more accurate.
Fully sealed bearings – Keeps contaminants out and grease in for smoother operation and less maintenance.
Lower EMI Levels – Redesigned housing improves sealing and results in less radio noise.
Smaller and lighter unique design allowing for a dimensionally smaller magneto, resulting in easier installation and lighter weight- as much as one pound lighter than competitive magnetos.
Radio noise suppression- Slick magnetos feature superior noise suppression, eliminating the need for magneto filters.
Easy to maintain- Slick magnetos use up to 50% fewer parts than the competitive aircraft magnetos. In addition, 70% of the parts in any Slick magneto are interchangeable with the comparable parts in other current production Slick magnetos.
Modern airplane engines are required by to have a dual ignition system – that is, two separate magnetos to supply the electric current to the two spark plugs contained in each cylinder. One magneto system supplies the current to one set of plugs, while the second magneto system supplies the current to the other set of plugs. The airplane’s double ignition system provides better performance because of more efficient combustion and a higher level of safety through redundancy.
