    MSD flywheel for the oldGP1200 has 2 magnet locations.

    MSD flywheel.

    The old ignitions had magnets for each cylinder, (2) for a twin and (3) for a triple. The newer flywheel/ignition kitrs use (1) magnet and (3) pick-ups.

    Are you saying this flywheel was from a twin.
    I have the older ignition I believe.
    All new newer flywheels had different markings and the coils were seperate.
    Part #s are coils 4293
    ignition 42351
