400 since new Keith. I opened it up last night. Carbon brush disintegrated the pieces all over innards. Rotor is hard to turn by hand. Toast.

I?m in PHX (Mesa) with a day off and an RV10 itching to fly. I can fly your guy and/or the mag and whatever else you need so he doesn?t have to drive. I can be there before noon. I?ve been field rescued and am overdue to pay it forward.

Default Slick SB3-08 needs to be reviewed

Your s/n, per my understanding, indicates a magneto originally manufactured in January 2004... SB3-08 talks to this exact issue.

I just had a Slick Mag failure last week with only 386 hrs on it since new. This one the secondary coil failed. I was lucky and landed at my home field and had a local Mechanic repair it from use parts.

This is the the second premature Slick failure I have had. I think I will buy Bendix next time.

Glad to hear you are getting setup and good luck with the new Mag.

Last I saw Vlad - about 45 minutes ago - he was preparing to depart Deming. Replacement mag installed and working as expected.

John R. (sorry, can't recall your full last name) is a SAINT! He pulled a mag from his project engine, drove it to Deming from Phoenix (350 miles), helped Vlad install it, and now get's to drive all the way back! Well done John!!

Default ?What a Country!?

I am reminded of the Russian comedian, Yakov Smirnoff, whose famous punchline is ?What a Country!?
