mag stuff

Hi Ryan
sorry you are still having probs... Sad

This is my usual attack for mags problems... :face:
Check that the points aren't shorted out by the mounting washers, easy to mis-assemble, and it's not always obvious.. scratch
Clean the points [several times may be required]..
Check the gap 10 to 12 thou...
Remove the top cover and clean the contact on the coil and springy bit..[you may need a modified screwdriver bent at 90 degrees to miss the tank]
Check the HT lead is contacted by using a multimeter...
Wipe over with some WD 40 and put the top back on...
Check lead against engine in case the plug is knackered...

Failing that I take the chain and sprocket off and run it up on a battery drill, with the lead taped next to the mag body. I have seen them come to life this way bom

Cheers
Dave Very Happy
