FAQs

Why are some magnetos driven clockwise and others anti-clockwise?

It simply depends on the drive system of pinions and/or chains adopted by the manufacturer (and of course the direction of rotation of the engine). The direction of rotation of a magneto is traditionally referred to as being clockwise or anti-clockwise when viewed from the drive end, not the contact breaker end.

For a bit of fun, we've put together a set of schematic drawings of the timing systems of a few 1950s British motorcycle engines. See if you can guess which engine is shown, and then press the reveal button to check.
