Cool Dixie chain drive magneto. Putting it on a 1927 speedster .
That is a Totally awesome Magneto setup. Thanks for for the look see.
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.
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?
Here is one for sale now on the net....just search for 'Dixie magneto' and you will get much info.
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.
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, here it is
Thank you, Duane. I now have a case of "The Wants"!
Bosch also made a setup just like that:
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
