Putting together a '55 Pan. I got a used circuit breaker from a '62.
I don't know if I have it put together wrong, but just holding it in my hand and turning it, it's not contacting the points. Maybe it will become more apparent when it's installed? Also, the guy who built my engine intalled the bottom part of a circuit breaker so I won't have to pull the head. Is there a trick to taking mine apart and putting it in there?

I'm still collecting parts. What else do I need get her started in my garage? Battery, generator, voltage regulator, relay, coil, plugs and wires, obviously. Am I leaving anything out? What is a usable cheap regulator, relay and coil? I just want to get it running, I plan to go magneto/batt eliminator later. Kick only.

Cool, that's what I was told. Once that primary drive you sent gets here, I want to get going on this ol' gal. Do I NEED a bettery just to start/run with no lights? I'm saving for that snap-action magneto...don't want to buy too much I'll just be shelving later.

I am buying the Genn and 752 Remy Relay from the classifieds, he said they would work together. I'll ask if it's 12V.

For the dollar you have in it....It will work fine..(As long as it's a working gen)
Although 6V lighting is a bit short of what the 12V can do..

Being a chop and having little needs for a high amp gen also is a plus.

On my Buell, I have a 130/90 watt headlight bulb...(65/50 watts is stock)
At times the need is there as to not out-run the candle-power of the light.

Cant you loosen the base bolts and raise the jug and head together and have room for the dist....just a random thought..

Also you may want to check the size of the holes in your motor...

Most all the Old motors has been converted to the 12V gens...(Over the years)
If your has....You will need to drill out the gen that you are using for the 5/16 X 18 thread of the later models....????

Be a wise idea to also check the back-lash on gear fitment... (Gen gear to Gen idle gear)

AND.....Make sure that the gear is a press fit on the armature shaft....
If it is a slip fit....Will cause all kinds of grief down the road...:(

He let me out of the deal. Maybe I should go 6v if it will fit anyway? Only $100...but a 6v battery might negate the savings.
