My 1924 touring does not have a magneto post in the hogs head. When my car is running and I switch from batt to mag the car continues to run. I have an outside oil line that goes directly into hole on top of hogs head where the mag post goes. I'm confused. Please advise.
Switch would be wired to battery both sides.
The only anything I can think is that It has to be magic.
Or maybe a miracle.
If I were you I would attach a wire between the switch and the house. You will save enough money in a year in electricity to buy another few Model T's and a new truck
. Oh ya what frank said
My car came to me without a magneto and with a Truefire ignition installed. The shop that did the installation put a jumper wire on the back of the switch so that both key positions draw from the battery.
Thanks. Sorry, realize I didn't ask a very intelligent question. Should have asked "why would someone go to the trouble of wiring switch where both sides are direct to batt".
Should have thought more about it. My ignition switch is touchy on batt position and obviously there must be something wrong with the magneto so the switch was wired to keep car running with bad switch sometime in the past. I'm a newbie, only had car short time. Learning everyday. Now time to investigate why magneto is not working.
In answer to Donnie,
It might have been done before the car was sold to fool the potential buyer into thinking the magneto is functioning.
