Flywheel Re-Magnetizing

I am in need of improving the magnetic properties of my Firefly flywheel. Can you point me in the right direction.

I live in Canada and have not found a valid source for doing the work.

I suppose lawnmower repair shops just bolt on new parts or toss out the machine, but maybe the oldest one in your area would have an idea?

I had my Villiers 2T flywheel remagnetised ( in my UK case Villiers services) it was a real Frankenstein lab set up with a collection of light bulbs that all lit up I suppose to give a current flow it did not take long and certainly worked

As above, I used Villiers Services for mine. I am sure they would deal mail order but it may not be cheap. The actual remagnetising however was very reasonable.
