It looks like the dual vac dizzy on a 1600 CT air-cooled, with a rev limiting rotor arm.
What did you want to know about it?

Exactly, looks as if the points and contacts could do with a clean or replace if having ignition problems.

Thanks all, my mechanic hadn't seen one before and I'm still learning...

He did say he thought the rotor arm was rev limiting though!
