If the electronic thing is Pazon check that your lining the red dot up with the correct hole, there's two holes for clockwise / anticlockwise , from memory I cannot remember if they mean the rotetion from the drive end or the circuit board end I think it's maybe  the other end to what Lucas use for rotation description, I remember I fell foul of something like that when setting it up

Nick,

First post: died for apparent fuel reasons. After that, all kinds of timing and other mag-related work. Any chance that, in all the excitement, the plug wires have been reversed, or that you timed to the opposite cylinder than that for which the plug wires were set up when you started? (Effectively the same as reversing the wires.)

Bill,

I read it as an electronic device for detecting the opening of the points on a/the magneto. I didn't see any mention of electronic ignition and, hence, wasted spark. On the other hand, I may have missed it, as you know I could.

it's a mag , the annoying thing is that for years the bike was my sole transport then a couple of years ago after a lay off i took my wife up into town foe my birthday treat great down the strand, round traflger square and up to soho, parked it and when we came back it refused to start.

so that when i got the mag rebuild , did a few other much needed job , reskimmed brakes new tyres and because i had a bonus a new monoblock !
