I have a 10 Touring and your car is a 1910. The badge on the radiator is the id badge that should be on the heel board on the passenger side. The number of the tag on the radiator puts this car as a touring car that is somewhat early in the production. the engine number will not match the tag number. My car number is 7093 and the engine is 6669. So you don't know the order of the builds. They may have made these things in batches is my guess. The windshield was an option and from a few pictures I have seen there were many cars that did not have a windshield from the factory. The top was also an option but it looks like many were made with the top and no windshield. I am looking into reproducing the radiator badge as mine is badly polished out and almost unreadable. The radiator badge was soldered on with 3 brass pins. Also mine looks different that the one pictured above. Which is different than the enameled badges.
Have fun with it. I have only had mine since August 2016 and it has been very educational learning about it. I also found an original parts and owners manual which is helpful. But the biggest help is find and early Dyke's automotive book, 1911 or so. They are reproduced and the cost is not to bad and a great read. Take a picture of your dash if you would, I would like to see if your "bee box" is similar to mine. I know the speedo was added later
Forgot to say the wood above the curved dash is part of the windshield assembly. So if you don't have the windshield you will not have the wood toper. you would have only the curved dash that you have.
I do have the wiring diagram of sorts. I will make a copy of the one from the 1910 manual. If your box is like mine you may have a master vibrator that controls the other vibrators. You will need to open the box and count the contacts for the coil boxes to know for sure. In any event your switch looks to be like the one pictured in the manual. I can say mine starts much easier on the battery than on the mag. But it runs much better on the mag than the battery. I think I have an issue with a loose or warn timer.
Yes, you are missing the timer for the battery system and I would bet some of the linkage to the timer from the advance adjustment lever on the steering wheel as well. I will try and get some shots this weekend. I am very familiar with this view when I rewired mine. The timer is a pain to work on because of very limited space.
So is this the same car that is currently listed on the HCCA site for sale? Just asking.
Ok, here is what we have. The pdf file named scan is the wiring diagram (such as it is) from the 1910 manual. Your wiring may be slightly different due to the manufacturer of you bee box (battery system). Attached are pics of the wiring for my car. I just redid them. Fairly simple and I think the brackets are something they would have done back in the day. Certainly looks better than it did. Excuse the water spots as I had a leaking hose clamp and need to clean it up. The timer picture did not come out well (darn auto focus camera) but you can see a round disk with terminals. The drawing is a good depiction of the timer. And finally what you get after 107 years of polishing on the radiator badge. Tried to paint it but the raised letter are to far gone. I am going to etch some brass and make a reproduction but I am not sure I want to remove the old badge. Well after I make a new one I will make that decision.
brass terminals on the mag. Same nut style as on the firewall.
NO, do not dissemble the mag. No need. There should be a group (semi circle) of 4 terminals on the side of mag with a brown Bakelite face. In fact there are on the Bakelite block or end. The high tension sparkplug wire connects to these 4 brass thumb screws. I will try and take a picture.
Looks like you have a later model Mag fitted. I believe it should be a Bosch Du4. Any 4 cylinder mag will work as long as it sparks ..... and at the right time.
I don't know. you could try looking up the mag in the internet since you have a data plate. or just gently pull. I hesitate to tell you to pull the cap since there are gears and other wonders of the universe under the cap. Maybe someone else has more experience with this mag. It could very well be something off a tractor, but I am only guessing at this point.
