Magneto refurb

Post #1 by RichardJW~ » Sun Mar 13, 2016 8:21 pm

Can anyone recommend a good firm in UK who can recon an Eisemann RC-2H magneto.
I'm thinking someone who you have had good service from, rather than a random name from one of the classic machinery mags

thanks

What is the mag for Richard, I do have a few and some are fully re-built, mag's used to cost around a ton to be sorted, but now it can be around £700 depending on the type, Eisemann mag's are very complex items with a load of parts inside them,I also have parts like the fibre gears etc, I know I have a D7 mag as new, sadly I give my Mag's to a pal that gets them done by his pal ? tctractors

Hi Tony, its off a '43 D2 that I am sorting for someone.
There's no spark, I put the multi-meter on it and it seems to have a permanent short to ground out the stud on the top (goes to on/off).
Then with the points set the resistance is about 0.6 ohm with them open. That can't be right.
