Condenser Changing

Post by Hughesy on Tue May 15 2012, 11:10

Hello all

I have a wico ek magneto which produces a very weak spark. I was wondering if i could change the condenser with one out of another from a lucas rs1. just to test see if it is the condenser.

i was just want to make sure it wasnt going to harm the magneto.

Hi Lewis, i dont think it should cause a problem as long as its not long term, i would be trying one in mine to test it, if you want to get the right one to try contact Martin or Andrew at vintage magnetos, there on this forum, or Mike D has contact details for them,
