Thanks for the comments, they have brought in mind a statement from my old metal work teacher circa 1973 "The easiest solution is possibly the best solution". After some initial research from the web sites provided- the mag dyno (With probably 12v conversion) seems quite attractive, and reliability of a re-built mag seems to have little concerns.
But, I am sure I will return to this subject, so far the B31 re-build consist of the delivery of my new shed and trying to find a cheque book to join the BSAOC, but hey one step at a time!
Thanks again for the replies

Singles / B31 Sparks & Lights
« on: 24 April, 2017, 23:09:15 »
Hello all,
After working abroad for the last 15 years I am finally back working in the UK and have pulled the B31 (Rigid 1949) out and am embarking on a full re-build.
The bike is complete and I do not expect many surprises along the way, but I know the mag was iffy, the dyno does not work and I really fancy decent lights and a reliable spark.
Can anyone help with the following questions please?

Can I replace the cam & spring engine shock absorber with a cush drive to allow an alternator fitting & Subsequent electronic ignition?

Has anyone any comments on the magdyno replacement units for sale on the web?

Any ideas to banish the prince of darkness and appease the spark fairy are most welcome.
