Hi guys - you'll notice I'm keeping my head down while the missiles fly from one to the other over it! The history here is that the armature is what was on the bike when I bought it and looks pretty new. The body c/w magnets is one from ebay that I bought 'cos the one on the bike had a crack across the housing by the side of the dynamo drive gear at the the thinnest part. The plan was simply (!) to take out the innards and fit them in the replacement housing. As Skip pointed out I probably didn't tap the Woodruff keys in far enough and could not then get the end cover on so took up Anna's kind offer of re-assembling it all for me. Simples - no? George

 

 Hello well I have freed up the disc for the fibre gear and it now fits like a glove over the armature shaft, now with paul  wolf  offer his services it now up to you George  How I  now proceed further  is up to you, I can skim the armature steel centers up by filing by hand on the lathe  turning the lathe by hand  and checking with a set of clocking dial gauges   it's in your hands , but even if you get another body does not mean this  armature will fit right you may sill need work doing on it either way, Has I have armature isolation on only 1 quarter of the rotation of the armature  it's catching the sides  inside the body     yours anna j

Hi Anna - if you check your "inbox" on your emails you will see I've dropped you a note rather than open this up to the world. You've certainly highlighted some faults of which I was unaware when I thought it was a simple rebuild. Please email me direct when you've read my own email. Cheers George

Thanks for the link, Barry. That is almost what I did. I bought a secondhand body to replace the cracked one on the bike. Hence my thinking it would be a simple dismantle/reassembly. How wrong I was! George

It may be worth buying that one anyway George. It is not much money, for a back-up/spare?

I'll wait till I've got mine back Ian. Don't want to throw good money after bad. George

I know what you mean George. It is easy to accumulate parts that will never be used; I've got a garage-full! Embarassed

That's more like it, Barry. I could be tempted by that one. Let's hope my own mag is returned soon and I can then decide on the next step. I'm still hoping to be on the road by Easter! Thanks for your input. George
