magneto drive
« on: 20 Dec 2020 at 11:38 »
Hi I've attached a couple of pictures of the gear train to magneto drive unit and am totally stumped as to what may be missing to connect this to the Lucas mag-dyno that it should have had. Any information gratefully received.

Hi think I've got my answer, the attached is a lucas MagDyno unit with the matching drive fitted. Unfortunately this is only a picture so once I find the taper on the mag spindle I will have to have a go at machining my own. If I do the 3D model I will post it here for anybody else to use if they need it.

Chris.

Hi she's a 1934 Model Z or at least a complex pile of bits making up about 90% of a model Z

Hi Chris,

The standard K taper is 1 in 5.

Cheers

Leon

Thanks Leon that's going to save me a lot of hassle trying to measure it.
