    Default 1914 Henderson Mag - Splitdorf?

    According to the 1914 Henderson sales brochure, the 1914 model used a Splitdorf mag. Does anyone know if it was a model EU-4?

    Peter,

    Did you ever confirm the EU4 was on the 1914 Henderson?

    Do you have photos of the magneto?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Never confirmed it, but the EU-4 is from the period. The Henderson parts manual lists Splitdorf for 1914, along with a note that says Bosch and Berling might also be used.

    This is from splitdorfreg.com:

    E series
    The "E" series high tension magnetos were built for a variety of motorcycle configurations; single cylinder (EU), V-twins in 42, 45 and 50 degrees (EV), 180 degree twin (E2), and four cylinder (EU4). The construction of these magnetos include an aluminum base to which the pole pieces are secured, and between which revolves and armature on two annular ball bearings. A pair of tungsten steel magnets straddle the pole pieces. These are covered by a ribbed aluminum cover that is designed to keep out dust and dirt. These were used on Indians as well as other makes of the early teens.
