Hi Everyone,
Recently i got my hands on an old Davis Dayton motor wheel, as i am pretty good with mechanical things i dont need much help in the way of that however the ignition system
is a High Tension Magneto and it is missing some parts i have the contact points but no condenser or spark wire. The major problem here is that i have no idea who made the Magneto there is no name on it, and i have found very few references as to who made it. I am wanting to repair it but without knowing the magneto type or having a schematic its making it very difficult, I beleive the Smith motor wheel used the same magneto and i know they used several different brands i have heard elkhart, national or berlin. Does anybody know what type it really is and how to connect it properly..if you have any information or have experience with these anything you could tell me would help greatly appreciated. i attached a few pictures the first one is mine the second two are from other engines on mine the bar magnet has been removed and you can see the points the second pics are for reference Please anybody that can help greatly appreciated

It is conversations like this that makes me wonder if the CABE is the most important thing in my life. No, my wife feeds me.

Some of the antique hit & miss engines use magnetos. The picture shows a national mag. I think they were used on new way engines. A magneto repair shop or hit miss enterprises might be able to help

Hi Bob, the last picture was for reference, we identified the mag its a Berling Magneto
