    Default 101 Engine DGP18XX and Magneto/Dynamo Identification help

    I bought this Indian Scout Motor years ago and am looking for any additional info on it or the Magneto / Dynamo that was on it. What I have found out so far is that the motor (according to the Oregon Trail chapter AMCA Indian Serial Number chart) is the following:
    1928 Model GEP/101 Engine Number Range DGP100-DGP4317, Horse Power 6.61
    Description: 45 101 Scout changeover year from sf Scout, mostly assumed 1929

    Here's what I think I remember that I was told when I bought it:
    The guy I got it from, I believe, told me it was used as a hillclimb or racing engine of some kind and told me the name of the guy's shop in NY (I think) that it came from. I just don't remember any of the facts...wonder why?

    The Motor has 1/2 inch stroker plates under the cylinders and the Magneto/Dynamo is a Robert Bosch Germany. The pics show all the detail of markings on the mag.

    Any Indian/Magneto experts out there? Help!

    Hi,

    your Mag looks if it is the correct Mag-Dynamo for Indians. to be sure you need to see if it says DVAR or DVBR on the top / drive side and the cam-ring needs to be correct for 42 (some camrings are marked on the surface that touches the mag - sometimes these are too worn to be read)

    I can provide you with more information on these mag-dynamos if you write a PM.


    You can find information in the forum of the German Veteran MC Club http://210277.homepagemodules.de/ as well as at http://www.magnetos.de/bmz/php_sites/home.php (also parts and repair service for these)

    These magnetos were also used on Super X Streaminers in the US.

    Regards,
    gsottl

    Thanks gsottl, It is a DVAR. It was on the 101 engine pictured. Is it proper for a 1928 101 scout?

    Yes, DVAR is fine for 1928. Kent Thompson in Fitzwilliam NH has original parts for these. He will be at Oley.....

    Cheers,
