I'm looking for some replacement magna spark bushings and springs. I cannot find anything as of now. Do not see it on CB website or just a google search. Anyone have a lead they could give me? Otherwise, i will call CB on Tuesday. Summit carries pertronix kits but did not see magna spark.

Thanx

What in particular are you looing for in the bushing/spring kit?

Look for an MSD spring/bushing kit. They appear to be very similar.

The motor I bought new, but from the original purchaser. Was still on the crate but already broke in by powerhaus.

Iím am looking for both the springs and bushing to mess with the timing. I donít have the extras that normally come with the purchase of the kit.

I will look at the MSD, thank you for that. Normally it come with 3 different colored bushings and 3 different sets of colored springs.

Appreciate the lead,

Thanx

Magnaspark, top vs MSD bottom spring bushing/spring kits.

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

The Magnaspark heavy springs appear to be quite beefy.

So just to follow up on the magna spark spring and bushing kits. I called CB Performance and they have multiple sets around their shop. They are willing to give me a set even though they do not sell them on their website. David was kind enough to offer some of their extras. Just another reason CB is a great and customer friendly company to use.

Thanx again to the members who offered up some of their extra parts.

Justin
