    Bosh and splitdorf were the optional mags.Mine came,I believe, from the factory with a Bosh FFVRS sometimes called a "baby Bosch"
    I dont know the splitdorf number off hand but it has bakelite cap.no elbow like 38-39 and retained by screws ,not wire like earlier ones.Advance lever on bottom same as 35.
    I used a rigid frame header and exhaust from Greer from the 36 listing which is the same.

    The Splitdorf was a type C2. The muffle had the cutout in another position than the later models as far as I know, but the 36 is very well useable on the 34 Chief.

    A look at some pics of 33 and 35 in Hatfields resto guide shows the 33 cutout at the rear by the fish tip,while 35 shows forward at the beginning of the muffler.
    No 34 exhaust pics in his book so I will have to dig thru some pics.Never noticed that before.Thanks

    My 35 Chief is Y and Mag motor and has a Splitdorf CDH Magneto. I replaced my original exhaust with Greers, great fit, heavy and expensive but worth it.
