Mags on a 1913 2 3/4 ?
« on: 23 Jun 2015 at 12:58 »
So I have a new quest now - Bosch condenser compromises !
On my wife's 1914 Enfield, I easily fitted a modern condenser as it has a very convenient terminal on the side of the mag.
The Bosch ZA2 on my Duggie is unfortunately less thoughtfully constructed, especially when the clearance between its points housing and the flywheel is considered.
So, before I reinvent a wheel, has anyone :
1) made up a Bosch points cover with a 'brush' for a cutout ?
    (perfect for fitting an external condenser)
2) played with the very interesting looking www.brightsparkmagnetos.com 'EasyCap' ???
3) got recommendations for sourcing a new set of points ?
4) got anything suitable for sale ?
5) got any Bosch Diagrams please ?

If all else fail, try and find an EIC magneto. My one (1913 2 3/4) was overhauled with a new condenser a few years back.
