The Pro Mag 44 is the mother of all magnetos.
With no magnets to recharge, no points to replace and by producing an
amazing 44 amps of primary current, its no wonder that the Pro
Mag 44 is the choice of top fuel dragster and funny car teams!
Just like its sibling 12 Amp Pro
Mag, the 44 utilizes a proprietary assemblage of rare earth magnets
and windings to produce this incredible energy. To accurately trigger
all of this energy, a magnetic pickup is mounted in the lower base of
the generator and is triggered by one of eight precision paddles on
a reluctor mounted to a 0.500 shaft. This pickup replaces weak
and inaccurate points and never requires replacement or adjusting.
When the pickup is triggered, the signal is sent to the Electronic
Points Box where the spark duration is controlled then directed to the
44s Coil. Over a pound of copper wire goes into the special hand-wound
windings deep within the coil where the voltage is immediately stepped
up and sent to the magneto cap. Next it is accurately distributed to
the correct spark plugs to create a burst of energy in the cylinder.
Another advantage to the Pro Mag
44s design is that you can incorporate optional accessories. A
crank trigger can be adapted to trigger the mag for the ultimate in
ignition triggering, add a Timing Retard Control or even a rev limiter!
The MSD Pro Mag 44 is hands-down, the most powerful and accurate magneto
available and its durability matches its performance.
