I would love to help you restore your dynamos , but unfortunately I have disposed all my equipment .
I can help you by guiding you and your mechanic to get them going .
I have a person who will rewind them but assembly and fitting will be done by your mechanic .
If you wish to do the above , I will get in touch with you soon .

Magneto's are now repaired by Christopher Hendricks in Pune. They do Bikes, cars and truck magnetos, they have a huge stock of spares.
Bikes are also done by him, preferably high end ones as bike restoration has in the meanwhile become expensive.

Prashanth that's good info to have. Has he been doing this for long and does he do the winding the old fashioned way or with some modern winding machine. Do you have an old bike with a mag too?
Cheers

Ruby has been around since 1971 and johns dad used to do the magnetos and since his dad passed away 10-12 years back he has taken over .He is technically sound and they have the modern winding machines as well and uses them .Since the modern epoxy coated winding wires are used its a one time winding effort post which i haven't seen any magnetos fail due to winding issues .Most of the old timers in south would know them as magnetos from kerala ,AP and TN as well used to be shipped to Bangalore and was rewound at Ruby .
Yes i have three mag bikes ....thankfully running well and no magneto issues ...
