Wipac points

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am currently trying to get an old BSA running for a friend- An old ex-military Bantam D1. I have recently replaced the piston and rings, with a brand new barrel, and I know there is good compression. The fuel is correctly mixed, and the carb appears to be functioning correctly.


The spark however, is a different story! The points are meant to be set to .15 thou, however set to this, there is no spark. If you reduce the gap to about 0.08 thou, there is a good, clear spark, however it will not fire (i'm guessing because the timing is then badly knocked out.


Is the problem more likely to be the coils, condenser or the magnets on the flywheel? :-|


Thanks very much in advance,
