I've never heard of, much less seen, this item. Duane, did you make it yourself, or is it available from one of the vendors?

Bill, this came off of a 1911 speedster my uncle had. It was stored in an old shed for years.He bought it from a guy who collected brass T parts.It looks like it was a kit that was offered at one time as all the brackets are cast and fit well.

Duane;

I'm putting a note into Lang's inbox about this. I would very much like to explor getting one, or having it made.

By the way, I sent you a note about Bailey's and my being in Reno in December; will that work out?

Bill Everett

Bill, a visit would be great. Just give me a call, I'm in the white pages. Also found this link on the forum Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2011: External magneto for Model T engine . It is the same bracket as on mine.

Duane;

I'll call a few days before Bailey and I head out.

I've looked in the 2011 Forum, as well as done the search options on keywords; no luck.

Can you cut & paste the link?

Thank you, Duane.

Bill Everett

Bosch also made a setup just like that:
bosch mag drive

The sprocket on the cam shaft need to have double as many teeth as the sprocket on the magneto. If you have a magneto that rotates in the opposite direction from the cam you can put a sprocket on the crank shaft instead, same size as on the mag. Very cheap & easy do it yourself speedster magneto drive :-)
