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.
