  1. Splitdorf $350 Wico $300 unknown brand $350 Heinze $400 All are 4 cylinder Does yours mount on a shaft or against the case? Picture of your location would help determine.
  2. Your existing coil box appears similar if not identical to units used on Model T Fords. If so, the engine side would be laid out like this Kingston unit. the Ford diagram would apply. Note that your engine would have a timer wired to the coil box, a typical timer is pictured. The wiring diagram shows 1911 Hudson with a special coilbox that controls both that box and a magneto. The idea is to start on coils using a battery then switch over and run on the magneto. Your existing magneto with start the engine if you crank fast enough, it is not capable of making spark from battery power. The idea in the old days was to prime the engine, then turn on a battery powered system that would spark the plugs thereby starting the engine with not hand cranking needed. I am going to guess that your engine has 2 sets of spark plugs. What does the engine side of the coilbox look like?
  3. I am thinking that Jacobson-Brandow made coil boxes that worked with a timer. Your Bosch magneto dates from 20 years after the car so perhaps is a replacement for the timer. Can you post pictures of your equipment?
  4. White cars used MEA and yes they are high end quality. I believe this is a Mea dual switch coil for magnetos equipped to start on battery and run on magneto. Often used on hand crank cars for easier starting.
  5. During that period most wiring diagrams are not auto make specific but rather make of electrical equipment. What make/model of switch/coil and magneto do you have?
  6. Model T Ford This is the "small" size that was sold for cars and trucks, overdrive, underdrive, direct and reverse.
  7. Goodyear No Rim Cut
  8. May be aftermarket body for car or light truck chassis intended for trade use.
  9. I would lean more toward 1926 Buick Master with aftermarket lighting.
  10. Picture is still worth a thousand words.
  11. Yellow Cab ?
  12. Popular "skiff" styling of the time. Note the 2 boat inspired ventilators just in front of the windshield.
  13. Paige I think, Keiser is probably right with covers over wood spoke wheels. No chrome yet in 1922, they would be nickel plated. Advanced styling yes and aftermarket copies of Rolls-Royce.
  14. Houk wire wheels changed the hubcap design late in the teens from an external octagon to a recessed hexagon. The new style was called "flush". It is the riveted on emblem that is different by makes of cars ( often says Houk on wheel sets and loose hubcaps supplied aftermarket).
  15. And every American carried an open sporty well proportioned body!
