4HP TITAN Side Shaft is now running on the Accurate U magneto.

After some considerable time working out the Accurate "U" magneto/linkage and trip finger timing as well as doing some repair to worn parts on this almost 100 year old engine, I got it to start and run on the magneto. Check out the Smokstak site on the WEB for a blow by blow description of the years work involved in getting this "basket case", almost complete, rare IHC TITAN Side Shaft up and running.
