Fairbanks Morse magneto points.
FM J mag uses FM#-- R2437 points or NAPA Echlin-- ECH CS1500 or BWD-- FS50 or Standard#-- S3-480

FM X mag uses FM#-- A2437A points or NAPA Echlin-- ECH CS1504 or SME 701014 or Borg Warner BWD -- FS11 or Standard#-- S10-478

If your mag housing or tag isn't marked J or X the J mag has the dist rotor gear inside the cover cap or the X mag has dist rotor gear mounted on the breaker points bearing plate.

Condenser: FM J & X, Low Capacity FM# AXMR2433, NAPA# SME 701308, BWD# FG6, Standard# S6-138
                FM J& X, High Capacity FM# SXY2433, NAPA# FM200, BWD# FG3, Standard# S6-138

I recommend using the high capacity condenser FM200 will help points last longer.  NAPA coils = china junk leave them alone!  There are other coils still made here.

Yep been doing my magneto homework for 29 years :)   At least we still have a few choices where to get points and condensers but nothing else.
