    The 1916 Electric model used a Remy electrical unit. Unbelievably hard to find, and when you do, the price will make you faint. I've had two Remy units and let them both go before I got my '16J. Sure wish I had kept one.

    The gear case and cover are basically the same for a mag or a generator model from 1915 thru very early 1918 (the years that use the Remy 15 and 250 generators) The shaft with the gear on it on both a mag and the early Remy units are the same height and use the same basic gear but timed differently. I say basically the same because the 1915 case and cover are slightly different from the 16-e18. The new Remy gen introduced in early 1918 has a lower shaft position and gear. This required a new design of both the gear case and cover. From that point forward, JD's had either a mag or gen gear case. The redesigned cover however was universal and could be used on either.

    Eric is right. The Remy units are rare as hens teeth. Want to buy one? I have an extra.

    Great help again guys. Thanks.

    Does anyone know the price for a nice pair of 1916 cylinders? (with no broken fins and nice bore). Anyone has them for sale?

    A good pair of 1916-1919 cylinders with a clean bore and a few chipped or broken fins will fetch about $1000. Perfect ones, maybe $1500???
    I'll look to see if I have an extra set.
