Looks like its the rear pickup to the LH cylinder but I think this is the way it was before I started the restoration according to the configuration of the original HT cables.

Again, many thanks for the help.

Conventionally it is " right to right", viewed from the drive end which makes the rearmost pick-up the feed to the left cylinder.
Usually you will find them either way.

I didn't think about this when I did the timing but seemed to have ended up with the normal configuration by chance. I guess it makes no difference to the way he engine runs!

Provided you view the bike from the front wheel back, is this the normal way to describe left and right on motorcycles, just I came on this somewhere else (might have beedn Draganfly rocker description but don't take my word for it)
I always think it should be as you sit on the bike

All references to mags are traditionally 'from the drive end', but for the bike as whole I always thought L and R were from sitting on the seat, same as you. Anything else seems plain daft to me.
Or we could have a discussion about the 'off-side' and 'near-side', just to confuse people like me with left-hand drive bikes (special export models - of course). Is the 'near' side of an Italian bike the 'off-side' to an anglais?? Cheers, Bill

OH dear, just re read Ttrev's post - now I get it, Trev refering to the drive end of the magneto, me thinking the drive side of the bike.

Sorry Trev  *shh*
