Re: 1948 Iron 4G Coil Ignition

Hello Folks, An update. I had it in mind to change the points, this was hastened when the teeny weeny wire broke. Via this wonderful forum my points were correctly identified with a part number. These points were used on a variety of Mazdas and Mitsubishi Motors. Given that I'm in Japan I thought ge...

Re: 1948 Iron 4G Coil Ignition

Hello Everyone, In the aftermath of the Typhoon I have not had the chance to go for a run. The bike has been standing in the workshop doorway where I can start it and let it run on the stand. I'm hugely encouraged , it starts easily (like it always did) and runs well. Suspicion of running rich, but ...

Re: 1948 Iron 4G Coil Ignition

Re: 4G Grease Dashpot 464261

Hello
I don't have a drawing (or a greaser) but Draganfly Drawing of MN1E magneto 'almost' shows the extended part that engages with the distributor shaft.
Who supplied the greaser ?
Best regards

Re: 4G Grease Dashpot 464261

Hello Folks Let me remind this Greaser has two functions. The lube duty - lack of greaser is easily overcome with a grease nipple (as on my 4G). BUT the proper bit of kit locates the Distributor Drive and stops it moving up & down. I made a stop like the retainer for the speedo cable at the gear...
