    I have a 48cc sky hawk ,just wondering if I order a part from ebay seller if it would work,like a cdi or magneto.

    the magneto should work because these engines are pretty much all the same. I hate to say that they are all the same because there may be subtle differences inside that you can't see. (like the size of the woodruff key or the size of the hole in the magnet that the shaft goes through.)

    the cdi will work just fine, those are all the same.

    no you misunderstood me.
    I have no idea if the woodruff keys are the same or if they are different.
    I woudl assume that they are the same, but you never know until you try the new one.
    I hope it works out for you and ends up being the same.

    I ordered 2 magnetos from a seller of "chinese scooter parts" last year. They bolted right up, looked exactly the same as the original, and I definitely spaced them properly with a business card.... yet neither one of them worked.

    Ya never know until you try is right!
