Magneto refurb

Graeme,

I tried a UK source one time and was disappointed with the service I got. Unless anyone knows of one they can recommend?

Though the cost of postage to Germany will be a bit more cost, both of mine went to BMZ in Germany.

Expensive but better than paying out twice.

Mag restoration.

Try asking the Vintage Sports/Car Club of the UK. I am sure they will know several sources.
I had my Bosch D2B done by a German Engineer, there is quite a bit to the process.

I’ve had one rewound with new

I’ve had one rewound with new condenser in the UK. Ribblesdale Auto Electrical in Preston. They did a good job on that part of the mag but couldn’t source new bearings, needless to say two years later the bearings started to fail. I sent it to BMZ Magnetzünder as link above and they sorted it. The bearings are shimmed, insulated from the case and need special grease so I thought best left to the experts. They also fitted a new dynamo armature in another and while it can take a while the job is good. I will go straight to them next time.
