Default EK Update

Well-after all the searching, gathering, & a half-day assembling it, the EK makes spark! The rusty cruddy magnet & core assembly was bead blasted & put together w/new coils, condenser, points, wipers, & covers, the original armature & frames from the Novo. Makes a nice fat blue spark-just the kind we like-plus it looks, on to the mixer & fuel pump, & maybe the Novo will live again.
thanks again to all who helped-Ron in CO...

It's always more rewarding to bring back the original yourself instead of throwing money at someone.
The knowledge gained is more valuable than one magneto, now you can repair them. That's why I always try to do everthing myself, the same attitude applies to computers BTW.
Your next step is to learn how to rewind the coils !!!

Yup, I've fixed a lot of Wico mags, mostly C's & X's from John Deeres, but the EK is sort of a different animal-I do like to fix things myself, but I think I'll pass on the coil winding for now-)-too many other things cluttering up my brain already.
