Well done Matt, looks great. Wish you the best of luck with it.

Thanks, Perry!

Congrats Brother and I wish you the best of luck!!! Retro Moto is now offering wiring harnesses,btw.

Thanks, Junior.  If Retro Motor's harnesses are anything like their other products, they should be pretty kick-ass.  ;)

'Prototype'  ;)

Looks awesome, Pete.  What kind of clearance is there between the points plate and the rotor?

It's 'adjustable' while I still have it here.  ;)
At present, 7mm
Outside diameter is 2.250", points plate is 2.4"

I see how it's setup now.  I always envisioned it to be behind the points plate, closer to the head.  This should work, too, though.

Also... maybe 5mm of clearance might be better?

It would be easier to make from thinner piece of material - less waste, less machining, just make a spacer to get to end of cam post so it clamps down
I think there would be enough clearance, I'll make a 'short' one to check.
Rotor only needs to be slightly thicker than magnets being used so I guess 4mm would be plenty?

Definitely plenty.  The test magnets I'm using are 1mm thick and 3mm in diameter.

The Hall effect sensor boards I bought have power and pick up LED's, (went a bit OTT buying stuff  :o )
 I was thinking of drilling holes through trigger wheel to have 'flashing lights' when motor is running using the slotted 'points' cover I made
 ;D ::)



Any idea what the dwell is going to be using small magnet?
 I would expect it to be much higher than  the 45~50 % with points which will give a much better spark
