Ignition Done

More work continued on my ignition. First was to find a thinner point contact. Took apart a shovelhead set and was able to install on one of the original “hooked” springs. 


Next was to replace the Bakelite insulator that was stripped in the hold down screw holes. Here is the old one (red) and the new one (white). 


Next was to drill and tap the three 8/32 holes. 


Preassemble components. 


And install back on bike. Here’s the result:


Looks like finally time to get some miles on!
