the plastic/rubber on the blade will wear quickly until it hits the rollers whether its half or full length, it takes a while before it gets to the metal.

Hello Derek,

Thanks for the message and info on the firing. The coils and leads are part of the complete Electronic Ignition Kit that was supplied by Wassalls which I bought brand new.  There is a reasonable spark from both plugs and I spent quite a lot of time getting the timing and tappets set accurately. I had new valves, rings and big ends fitted when I overhauled the engine, so am at a loss why she won't even give a puff of smoke !!  A 2nd opinion is what's needed....but it looks like there are no local BSA owners in the West of Ireland :(

i would try on here as here as well.

i would also try moving the timing 10 deg either way to see if it makes any difference, it wouldnt be the first time timing marks were wrong!

good luck

Hi, i have set up this system on my brothers A10 and we had similar problems, are you getting a spark? any spark should give you something even a small chuff!

it might sound obvious but is valve timing all ok, leads wont matter what side there on as its lost spark and both fire at same time.

What coil/coils are you using, coil for electronic ignition is different rating.

cheers derek

i think points coils and electronic ignition coils are different?

i had similar problem with A10 when trying to change from magneto to coil ignition, its currently a work in progress!!

get some cotton wool for your ears mike! oh and your neighbours as well!

i put high pipes on my a65 and whilst it looked good it was a tad noisy even with the baffles fitted and shorty type tail pipe fitted.

It did sound nice though.
