Just wondering has anyone got an opinion on either of the models of magnetos, My Avco Lycoming needs a new set and I am in the process of pricing both types with new HT Leads and Plugs but wanted to get the advice from users of both models.
Whats the better one to go with for overhaul timings etc parts availability and overhaul pricing
Would I be better to just buy complete new set or go for an overhaul on my bendix ones?

Check if you really need an overhaul - generally a 500 hour check is required unless the engine is at TBO and is being overhauled (or has had a propstrike). The 500 hour check is not a huge deal and depending on condition should be less than replacement. Slick (Unison) seem to have priced parts high so that an overhaul works out more expensive than a new unit.
Try Brinkley aviation for overhaul of either type. I had a recent quote from Saywell for new Slicks (about £1000 + VAT for a pair + a core deposit of £111 for each mag)
Some good background info here:
