It's rather old was used on cars and tractors, and it seems to be rare see the price they ask for this unrestored one... a 2 cylinder model.


Here an contempory ad from the british branch of the company from 1908.

Yeh I assumed that as well. The ignition must have been near enough timing with all the play in the gears 

You typically have a lever with 20 degrees of timing adjustment in that period. So, no, the mechanical timing wasn't critical at all considering what the driver could do.
