Early Jaeger Ignition Assembly of some sort...


Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone could fill me in on what exactly this is...I've never come across one of these, for all I know, might be a tractor part.


Tag reads L.W. Jaeger Ignition Co., has a Bosch Magneto...please see pictures.


Any information would be great.

This looks like an installation to covert a Model T to magneto ignition.

Many car electric manufacturers offered after market equipment to convert model T's to magneto or battery ignition.

American Bosch, Atwater Kent, Delco, Scintilla and many more....

99 percent sure it is for a Fordson tractor. The car/truck units are much shorter. That unit on a T or TT would stick out the side of the hood.

A tractor unit could be adapted to a model T, they used the same timer. But fitting could be a bit of a problem, and brackets would have to be made.

Yup, fits the American built Model F Fordson. 1916-1927. The later Irish and English built model N's came though with a mag from the factory. It is only good if you have the gear that re-places the timer roller to drive it. Most got left behind on the tractor that went for scrap. Dandy Dave!
