Vertex Magneto

Post by Rubicon »

Hi all

I have a used Vertex Magneto distributor as per pictures that i have been storing since my Beetle days (My first car and project) 20+ years ago.
Lock-down boredom forced me to unpack my old stuff.

Never used it .The cap is broken, but it produces a nice spark when i spin it by hand.
Do you guys still use it, and does it have any value as is?

thanks

Those magnetoes were mostly fitted to industrial engines, so not much of a market for them.

I don't know what they are worth.
