I had no spark so i ordered an easy cap to do a condesectomy before i pulled the Magdyno apart thinking an original condenser and that of one that has sat in a shed foe 30 years is cactus ..Surprise Surprise ...tested the HT and LT circuits and Cap all good ..( AT THIS STAGE WILL TELL YOU IM AN ELECTRICAL INSTRUMENTATION ENGINEER..NOT A CHUMP WHEN IT COMES TO CIRCUITS ) .So cleaned up the slip rings and replaced the Earth Brush and HT pick up and now runs..PS Bike did not look like this when i dragged it out of shed ..but has no REPRO parts on it.. all original..
