maggy end cover
« on: 30.05. 2014 09:00 »
Anyone here have a spare maggy end cover here for a rigid A10 shown here in an ebay ad?  Couldn't find one in the world.   http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261492586691&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en

Hey Wilko,

If it's only the black end cover you need I believe that Priory Magnetos Ltd. in the UK supply them.  They list 2 types.  One with the cut-out facility and the other without.  Check out their website and go to the Magneto and ATD Spares section.

As it says in the Ebay listing, Wilko, that's a clockwise K2F. For the A10, it needs to be anticlockwise (as viewed at the drive shaft end). To swap direction, the Ebay listing mentions the need to fit a different cam ring. But you'd also need to fit the opposite direction slip ring and contact breaker assembly and to consider whether the positions of the safety gap screws ought to be changed, and whether the housing needed a bit of shaving nearest the crankcase.
Ken.

 But is the end cover still the same...?  *conf*

 I think I have one somewhere, but there's a chunk out of the cutout lead protrusion...

If it is just the bakerlite end cap then i have a couple lying around as well.  The graphite cutout contact will need to be replaced from what i remember....
