Just wanted to close this one off...

Got the magneto repaired by Andrew Guttmann (themagnetoman@ntlworld.com). I mailed it to him and a week later it was back in the bike and it has transformed the performance. Very helpful chap, sensible pricing and as fast a turn round as you could hope for. Widely used by the BSA Owners Club members by all accounts - I can understand why!

Cheers

Hi Mike
Good to hear you've got strong sparks again. That was a quick turnaround which puts others to shame. I am looking forward to seeing the bike at a Hampshire Branch BSAOC meeting. Shame there isn't a meeting this Thursday with the good weather forecast to continue. See you soon
Cheers
Mike

Hi Felters,

Think I was one of the lads from Manchester you were chatting to at the Ace, I was the one on the little green smokey B40 with the canvas panniers.

Glad to hear you now have sparks. Mr Guttman has also had a look at my A10 mag and I look forward to the rest of the bike being in the same state of repair!

Cheers, Paul.

Paul - yes that was me...

I followed you much of the way down to Brighton before the mag threw in the towel.

How is the B40?

Hi Mike,

B40 got me home fine, 570 miles that weekend... Cost me more in oil than petrol! Bike languishing in a quiet corner of the garage awaiting a new piston and rings. Concentrating on A10 engine rebuild at the moment but will hopefully get round to it before spring.

Glad you got your bike sorted,

Cheers, Paul.
