    Default Who up here does good Mageto work?

    I have a D4RN-3000 magneto,, The dual type. That I want to have somebody really go through.
    Nobody I know around here is familiar with the dual type and they take a little extra know-how.

    They overhauled a set of Bendix mags for me. Expensive but you can't put a price on your safety.

    We did one for the 470 in a C 182 RG. I'll see where we sent it if you don't find someone, just PM me.

    Many of the Piper Navaho operators are running dual mags. They are not hard to work on and there are quite a few Navaho mechanics out there.
