The acetylene starting systems are pretty simple. Not good, but simple. Here's some pictures of the system on the 1913 Studebaker Model 25 I used to own.

You'll notice the small tube going into the top of the brass intake pipe

In this picture you can see where the brass tube comes out of the dashboard

This picture shows the switch on the dash

Its the switch between the oil dripper and the ignition switch.

Thank you for the photos. I can see what you are saying about being simple. I would like to know how the gas gets from the Pestolite bottle to the intake manifold. There must be some sort of valve or gas log for doing this. Also, it looks like the iginition takes place via a dual magneto and ignition coil. Is that correct?

Thanks again .......... Paul
