Mk5 points
« on: 29 Sep 2019 at 21:57 »
Hi fellow Douglas owners
I need a set of points for a mk5. The key has deteriorated in mine to the point it doesn’t maintain its position.

Does anyone have a set with a good key in for sale?

Alex - 07901003426

Thanks in advance!

        If you are referring to the key that locates the brass points plate in the end of the armature, that key is only pressed into the keyway and is easily flattened if the plate isn't correctly located before tightening the retaining screw. It is equally easy to push the key back out with the blade of a screwdriver, but be careful not to push it out too far as it will then snap off!
