Not trying to state the obvious but it appears to have a tachometer drive on it. At first I thought it was a Hegeler unit that does ignition and generator but when I went looking it wasn't. Does it have any other markings other than the U08/2?

No I think it must be Francois Grosset because when I looked up 'Francois' as mentioned in the first reply I see someone alluded to the fact he made an ignition unit I will pass on that information and hope they can get some fitting/timing information for it
