    I have a K2F mag that I reassembled and used for about 10 minutes. Received it in a box of parts and I'm unsure if all the insulating washers and such are in the right places, also unsure why it was disassembled in the first place.  I'm looking for someone experienced with this mag to check it over, bench tested if possible. If anyone has any reliable sources please let me know.

    The guru for all such things is Gregg Kricorissian of Ottawa. He is listed in the roster. Highly recommended by many including myself.

    Another good repair facility is "Adrian's Magneto Service".  He is located in Steinbach Manitoba.  Rudy Adrian's phone number is 204-326-6497.  He has rebuild several Lucas mags for myself and other friends. Reconditions complete mag and tests at a reasonable cost,  approximately 425.00 dollars.  Highly recommended.


    Cheers

    Bright spark in the uk makes a capacitor that installs under the points after the wafer insulator in that location has been removed ...I have done this in my K2F as well as my M01 mag......on the K2F you can leave the old cap in place and just bypass it....with the M01 you have to take the old cap out which means a little more surgery......good bearings shimmed correctly (especially with the flat face cam on the M01) along with a good capacitor, points and slip ring should help things out....
