Joe Hunt didn't make the magnetos, nor does Morris. They are fairbanks-Moorse units that these folks have modified. Usually they modify them to fit OHV Big Twins. A stock magnito from a K or Sportster will bolt on to your 42 U.

I dropped a FM /sportster mag in my 80 a few years ago to try it. Started easy, ran just fine. The mag ended up on the tractor, and works just fine there also, even starts in the Winter.
