Gave it a shot and WOW!!! Beautiful blue/white spark on the first kick!!!! ...
In other words - i took it apart, cleaned it thoroughly (especially the contact points etc) and put it back in when the engine had been re-assembled and it worked great. No re-winding or anything like that.

Yup Rehaan I umnderstood what you meant. I wanted to know if you had rewound your magneto coil, of course you haven't. I'm familiar with your long story, very similar to mine and I have three long stories like your bike in my garage.

@ Pune_Bike if you should need to get any of your magnetos fixed, there is a Gentleman in Lower Parel Mumbai. DKG in the thread India’s First International Concours D’Elegance - Pictures & Report mentions on page 3 the owner of the Healy as someone who has worked on magnetos extensively and has overhauled as lot of magnetos. He can give you rewound Lucas coils over the counter.

And I believe Nasikwalla still has British bike parts in his shop.

Yes !! Asher Bhai is really good with magnettos. Shabir Nasikwalla will still be able to give you most of the parts. Even otherwise, sourcing parts for singles should not be difficult.

Thanks for the info guys finally the mechanic has given up on the Magneto bike, so am getting it back to Pune and will get the Magneto looked at. Do you happen to know the exact address or phone number (can you pm me if appropriate) for Nasikwalla. Also the number for Asher Bhai would be good to have. Guys I am currently not in Pune and so it takes a while to get the information back and forth on the progress.

Pune_bike: Sorry dont know how to address you. Hope you come back to pune and do the restoration yourself. For me, that is the best part of owning these bikes and when the bike roars for the first time, it is quite ecstatic. If you are out of India, try and sourse out some of the parts, so you could carry it down when you come, especially the decals and badges and other small things like switches and levers. Although they are repros, the quality is much better than what you get over here. All the best.

Pune_bike: If you need help with repainting the original decals on your bike I could suggest a guy in Hyderabad IF you cant find an equally good known source in Pune/Bombay.

He's quite experienced with hand-painted decals/emblems on older bikes, his work seems quite good. Here is a work of his on one of Rashid Mody's BSAs.
