    Fitch Flywheel

    I am looking for a Flywheel off a Fitch injected machine. All I need is the magnets so a damaged one would be best if the magnets are fine. I want the 12 magnet version 4010646. Or does anyone know where I can get just the magnets.

    How do intend to re-attach the magnets?

    What happened to your 12 magnet flywheel? Usually it is the six magnet version that loses magnets due to the adhesive letting go.

    BTW, it is spelled Ficht

    Sorry about the spelling I know better. I have a TS 1100LI and it has the same type of injection. They stopped making them in 99 so they did not make a 12 rare earth magnet flywheel. I have had two flywheels loose the magnets and want to pull the magnets off a redesigned Polaris one and put them in the TS flywheel. Polaris made the change because magnets were coming off them but the flywheel will not fit on a TS.

    If you can find an adhesive that will hold them back in place, the six magnets are fine.

    You would only be able to use the Polaris Ficht magnets (six or twelve) if the inner curvature (diameter) of the Tigershark flywheel is the same as the Polaris flywheel.

    I don't know what adhesive Polaris used on the newer flywheels.

    I have heard that at least part of the problem with the earlier Polaris Ficht flywheels was that the oils embedded in the cast iron were not completely removed before the magnets were glued into place, hence the magnets coming loose later on.

    The change to twelve magnets was one of several changes Polaris made for the MSX 140 flywheel. The perimeter encoding ribs for the CPS sensor were made larger for a better signal, and the change to 12 magnets produced a stronger electrical output.
