thanks mike i will give them a call
just some mag specialists ask big money for things like £110 for a coil for a villiers and i can get them for £45-£65 pounds to my door
15 years garantee with them just not made in the uk
but to villiers original spec
i would rather the money stayed in the british ecconomy own pocket


i have a load of magnetos in my shed
but if i sold them garantee i will need one months later
when i get my first open crank
been there done it before
but some i have no idea what make or what they fitted too

i keep getting another one out and a servicing it to the best you can diy style
i have a wico mag maintainance book and just use it as a rough guuide as the princable in most mags are the same
just use "the force " starwars yoda style. lol lol
and then see if it lights a sparkplug by hand
and then final i us a drill polisher wheel and set the rotation the write way and make shore it works at 100=200ish rpm
as some mags spark at starting impulse speed and nothing higher up the rpms

Oh and abes you should get a answer that you can not pin a price on the mag ... depending what is wrong with the mag and parts / time used etc ....

Best thing is to give them a ring and arrange to pop the mag down there and for them to carry out some tests and find out what needs to be done etc .

As been told many times you will have to take it to them and can tell you after when done some tests .... as it could be just a condensor points etc or it could be a whole rewind which would be ££££'s

best thing is to give them a ring Abes .

Paul is it the same condensor as this one?
Not a bad price even to keep as a spare as they are difficult to find.
