It's interesting to note that the mount for the Holley magneto on your crankcase has four holes in the corners, and the adapter plate on your Holley magneto has two, one centered on each end (as does mine). When you briefly ran the Holley magneto, how was it mounted?

Thanks guys. Steve, of course.....

Tim, we ran the Holley-Huff magneto for several thousand miles with good success. As you know from Dean's demonstrations of this unique magneto (really the first operational CDI), it was extremely hot!

I'm not sure why two different mounting plates were used on the cars with obviously the same mounting plate and motor pad. Below are a few pics of our mag on the K roadster, and our different mounting plates:









The Ford magneto was first used on the six cylinder racer, beginning in the winter of 1904-1905. LIke the racer, the magneto evolved to the one seen on our cars and on the last iteration of the six cylinder racer. Here Frank Kulick is seated on the racer, with the mag mounted at the rear of the engine, in front of him:

I shouldn't be asking questions at 1:00am, which is well after my brain has retired for the day.

After looking again at the magneto mounting pad on the crankcase I see now that there are only two holes. The other two holes closest to the crankcase are for the oil pan.

All is once again clear.

I find even time of day doesn't necessarily lead to mental clarity for me.... :-)
