Generally the first major problem to stop a magneto is when the condenser goes. Fitted deep inside the windings, they’re generally beyond the scope of home mechanics to repair. However, after applying some considerable thought to the problem, the lads at Brightspark Magnetos Ltd can help you out

EasyCap 'condenser'

This is a new business set up last year to offer a completely new concept and product for magneto owners: an easily fitted condenser option for all the ‘hard’ (i.e. rotating coil) mags – the Lucas K series, magdynos, BTH and (some) foreign ones.

Called the EasyCap and using surface-mount, multi-layer, ceramic capacitors and specially made circuit board it applies modern technology to the age-old problem of condenser replacement in these instruments. It takes the pain out of spark failure and can be done at the side of the road in five minutes flat if necessary is the claim.

What’s it cost? There are three different types, depending on your magneto, but each costs a modest £13.

Where do you get it? www.brightsparkmagnetos.com the website of Bright Spark or email bill@brightsparkmagnetos.com
