Model T Ford Forum: Classifieds: Magneto drive for sale

This is a complete Eizemann magneto drive. It is in amazing shape. The gears look good, and the magneto gear is brass. The magneto drive has all the linkage and all the nuts, bolts, and washers. The timing cover doesn't have any fan belt marks on it. It is made to be very solid.

It comes with an adapter so that this can be used on a generator block or a non generator block.

It comes with two Bosch Du4 magnetos. One is rebuild and throws a very hot spark. The other is a good parts magneto. I can put the points cover from the restored carb on it, and it is hot.

The switch doesn't have a name on it but I think it's Bosch, it has German written on it. The switch has a magneto switch and a horn button mounted next to it. They are both brass and very well made.

$850 plus shipping.

Call Daniel 831-278-2742

If you would prefer it, I have a nice Eisemann G4 magneto or a Bosch zu4 magneto that can go with this in place of the parts Du4.

the Eismann set up is a lot nicer than the equivalent Bosch.

Ok I have to ask: what does a magneto drive do? I'm guessing it bolts up and replaces the generator or starter?

Robert, this magneto replaces pretty well the whole ignition system on a T. It's hard to see in the pictures but the magneto itself (the thing with the black magnets wrapped around the top) would have all four spark plug wires coming off the back of it.

Robert R, This type drive mounts where the generator was added in 1919, so generally cannot be used on a car along with a generator. The starter doesn't make much difference, just you would need to make other plans for charging the battery.
These were very popular on cars before 1919, and used well beyond that for vehicles without starters or generators. They are still popular with the speedster crowd.
After 1918, other designs were offered that held the magneto elsewhere so that the generator could be kept in place. Cross drives put the mag on the left side of the engine, as did some chain drives. However, these front gear drives are among the most desirable.
