Magnetos

 

Energic motoculteurs models B1, B5, C7 and D9 used the brand Novi Magnetos from 1929/30 to 1939/40. As Novi was a synonymous brand supplier to Motobecane. (After that date on the new in house manufactured models 409 & 411 models the magneto manufacture was changed to either Morel or Lavalette to ensure supply and price competitively).

The Magneto used in the Energic B1 was a Novi D50 – VD. The V being signifying variable advance and the D signifying droit/right. In it’s own way a rare magneto – see early Energic B1 motoculteurs here. The D50 – VD magnetos where also use in motobecane G and H type lateral engines/moteurs in 350/500cc form. (There was a D50 – VG available used in 350/500 OHV moteurs (Culbuteurs) engines of the 1929/30 era’s.)

Energic motoculteurs B5, C7 and D9 models used different versions of the Novi Magnetos depending upon the age of the motoculteur. Before and including the 407/408 models, they used the longer type 114 and H-50- , both with a mechanism to advance or retard the ignition timing. Later the newer smaller type M511(VD), used a static ignition spark delivery, and was available on the S Bloc moteured motoculteurs.

Sometimes these models where interchanged as a replacement part.
