Cheers mate will do, next job is to fit the gear box underneath, does anyone know if it matters if these little Jap generators run clockwise or anticlockwise, its running clockwise at the moment but once the gear box is fitted it will reverse the rotation now i know i can just put a twist in the v belt but would prefer not too, any help much appriciated

Not certain Abes, I know that vehicle dynamos can run both ways when new but when worn the brushes get 'shaped' in the direction of rotation. You might have to turn them around so that they are running the same way again or the sharp unworn edges can snag the armature segment's?

If you have renewed them then you should be ok. You will just have to connect everything up and try it rotation wise, wouldn't think that it should cause any problem.

Quick update managed to get a bit more done over the last couple of nights, have managed to source a couple of bakerlite switches so the box has now been wired up and checked using a 12volt battery i have, not too bright due to the bulbs being 20volt but only used just to prove everything worked ok, was suprised everything worked as crap with electrics lol, have also black top coated the uprights have given the feet and box a second coat of varnish and also done the underneath of the main bed just the sides and top left to do, pics below
