Default magneto ID? Hunt? Morris?

I was in the process of trying to sell this magneto when I realized I didnt know if it was a hunt or a morris. It seems to affect the price so before I list it on the classifieds here can someone dial me in to what brand it is?

Thanks

Parts are interchangable...as stated hunt had a smaller 5/16 inch hex in the rotor and morris had larger 3/8 hex. From clearly guessing without looking at the hex I would say you have a morris...hunt liked to use longer condensers...morris where shorter and fatter. doesn't matter...Fairbanks Morse made all main parts and they are interchangable. Value wise who knows which is worth more...hunt is still around...Morris started up selling magnetos for mainly motorcycles and that seems to be only business..the way I understand it is hunt was into racing 1st then went into motorcycle magneto's.
sorry if I bored ya...

Think it's a morris. joe hunt has no O-ring so they leak like a bitch. I'm no expert, just what I noticed between the two.

Actually it is a Fairbanks Morse magneto. Neither Hunt nor Morris make this magneto. They only adapt them for different applications.
