I need to ID an Eisemann Magneto


I recently bought a trunk load of misc old engine parts. This is the info on it,

Eisemann magneto.

Model AK-1S2

Symbols LU.

Ser # U1112

Chain drive with 12 teeth on sprocket.

It came with a load of stuff I bought at a farm sale. There was a lot of Wisconsin engines there. I have no use for it and plan to sell or trade for something I can use. It has no spark ? When staring at it from the rear while looking at the sprocket, which direction does it turn ? Thank's in advance.


If no directional arrow is stamped on either the front or rear have a look at the points and the cam that opens them. Usually the cam has a steep and quick opening angle and a slow close.
