I picked up the mag today from the rebuilder. He installed new points and a nice plug cable as well. I installed the mag and timed it this afternoon which was interesting, conceptually pretty simple and gave me a chance to use my magneto buzz box. I’ve also installed new tires and tubes, adjusted the valves, flushed the tank, rebuilt the carb, changed all of the fluids, checked the rear drive and primary chains and clutch and checked all cables. Tomorrow is the first attempt to start it. I have an old friend who attends all first startups. I’ll post a video if successful.
