I picked the engine in the photo up at the Bakersfield Horseless Carriage swap meet a number of years ago mostly for the Dixie Mag unit. Since then I have come by another two of these Dixie units in my travels along with the original manual that I am sharing here.
Here's the original manual for the setup.
Exceptional detail of an accessory most of us have never seen.
Thanks again Jay.
Thanks Jay. I didn't know they had an impulse mag too. A nice accessory.
Thanks for sharing. The manifolds are pretty neat too.
Jay: Have you got the book on a Splitdorf cross drive by some chance? Thanks Dan.
Edison bought Splitdorf in late 20 what would be interesting to me is if the drive has a Ford logo if made after Edison bought Splitdorf
Dan, I only have this booklet on Splitdorf magneto drives...so far.
BTW: To to let the lurkers know, it took a good two hours to do what it takes to post this thread.
Thanks for your effort Jay, it's great to see rare stuff - and with the original literature - it's priceless
I was also surprised to see they had an impulse coupling that early.
A friend in Colorado has the same setup. The magneto has Edison on it. A fifteen Metz I had was the same magneto as I remember fifty five years past. Thanks Jay!
Wow! Thank you Jay, for so much you do.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
