Robert Bosch magneto

Post by RAS » Sun Jan 01, 2006 3:56 pm

I would be grateful if anyone could provide me with some information. I have an automotive magneto made by Robert Bosch , Germany - Type ZF4. I am not aware of any vehicles fitted with magnetos after around 1930 and it might even pre-date the 1920s. It also has a part number clearly stamped and I have e-mailed Robert Bosch but have, so far, received no reply. It?s quite likely that all records for that period were destroyed during the war ? however, it is possible that some members of the club might have old workshop manuals which could shed some light on the possible age of this item. I would be most grateful for any information. Regards RAS
