Yes. Please add your bike details to the C register.

As Cosmic says a good sign, but if you know how to use a meter, from the centre tap cable, you should have higher resistance too double coil side, than to the single coil side, and setting to high resitance range you should have no leakage to core.
I don't know what bike we are talking about, or what voltage you are running at, but it is advisable to fit a combined regulator/rectifier, especially if fitting modern battery.

I'm afraid that, although it's a good sign, showing there are no breaks in the wires (open circuit), It does not, in itself, test for short circuits as can be caused by the insulation breaking down.

Let me know when this happens and I'll pop over to Cosmik's and press down on his shoulders when he's kicking it.  Ron

No need for stabilisation Ron... If I can kick over the Rudge then a C series isn't going to give me too much trouble ;) Actually, some of the hardest bikes I've had the pleasure of having to kick over have been 2 strokes. Anyone who's ever tried kicking over a 2t motocross bike without proper MX boots on will testify to that.

Ere Ron. Walked the dog up the old railway line behind Ainsleys and the fields, right up to beside his place and both sides of the line are fenced off. They're building a load of houses. Not sure he'll be too pleased.

There goes the neighbourhood.

A mustard enema does tend to liven the legs up a bit. English of course.

I use Jerry Greer when I have to, but shipping and import tax usually puts the damper on it. Have you emailed Juergen? He's usually there even when he's shut. Ron

Hi John,

thanks for  the tip.

I have tied to order at Jerry Greers, but no answer by now.
I hope I will hear of him, because he offers the rollers I need for a good price!
