Andrew,
                      The end cover on Dutch's magneto is probably the one which belongs to it, though modified for a cut-out wire.
The A7/A10 used this set-up until 1951 when the Bakelite cover incorporating the cut-out contact was brought into use.

 Yes I still have the original spring loaded button- I did the mod myself .
 It's a bit tricky getting at the button in a hurry while still in gear....!!!

 To do the mod, I used a regular spare pickup brush and spring in a short length of thin copper pipe with brass washer soldered on for a internal flange,sheathed with plastic tube and fibre washers each end for insulation, and brass washer with Stainless metal thread  set-screw.
 Must've had to drill out the spring seat from the body though..!!

You're absolutely right (Trev), it is quite unusual to come across a magneto which has not had its various bits and pieces swapped about. A Vincent or Enfield owner would be glad of the cam ring housing though because they are as rare as hens' teeth. If he offers a swap he'll want cash as well!
