About Magnetos

The Skoda magneto is an apparatus that generates electricity.

Magnetos are part of the ignition system in some internal combustion petrol engines and are used to provide high voltage electrical pulses which supply energy to the spark plugs. This type of ignition system consists of the magneto, a spark plug and spark plug wire.

The magneto uses electromagnetism to generate electricity. A magneto is made up of a magnet which spins around inside a coiled wire, positioned in the inner rim of the flywheel, which is connected to the spark plug by a spark plug wire. The magneto generates its own magnetic field of energy which is used to power the spark plugs in order for combustion to occur. This type of magnet is known as a permanent magnet and it provides regular waves or pulses of alternating current.

The coiled wire in the magneto can burn out and crack causing the magneto to malfunction. Replacing this part when it fails with the Skoda magneto will ensure a part that fits properly, works well and lasts longer.

Skoda trivia

  • In 2004, 1.8 million Skoda cars were registered in the Czech Republic. There are only 3.7 million cars in total that have been registered there, which means that almost half of all the cars available in the Czech Republic are Skodas. Every Skoda sold there is matched by a planted tree.
  • The 2018 Skoda Kodiaq RS is a seven-seater that set a new speed record in the car that has yet to be beaten (the car was driven by Top Gear presenter Sabine Schmitz).
  • The Skoda Kodiaq has some surprising features, many of which have been seen on later Skoda models. Some of the more 'out there' accessories include the ice scraper that is stored in the fuel cap and the umbrella that has its own dedicated space in the driver's door.
  • The Skoda company was formed when one of the founders, Václav Laurin, got some bad customer service from a bicycle repair business.
  • The team that designed the Lamborghini Miura and the Countach also designed the Skoda Favorit.
