    Many thanks Ted, what is the specification for the gauze ? Thank you for your offer, I can probably buy some locally which would be easier.
    thanks again

    Just checked no gauze’s ever fitted, I don’t suppose there are any members in the Bristol area I could hook up with who could help ? Cheers Al tel: 07712678905

    All fascinating stuff, I am just to go on holiday and will ponder the sage advice give !

    In terms of who did the mag, it was Vintage Magnetos in Bristol, the guy who rebuilds them is an ex Lucas employees, been using him for many many years and have never had a problem with any magneto he has done for me (he is super fast & very reasonable too !), the mags are always thoroughly tested on a ex Lucas test rig for an hour before he passes them on.

    Many thanks all, it appears through much fiddling the timing appears bespoke to this bike, at the recommended full advance (5/16th btdc) it runs perfectly, retard it and it spits back. I’ve looked down the inlet tract and can’t see any gauzes – where are they located ? The bike ran perfectly before the mag was rebuilt. As the bike was allegedly raced it might have been subject to some internal modification ! Thanks again, will see how I get on with running it slightly over advanced as it appears pretty happy like this !

    I was just about to get excited – I have Scott Reg TN9470 / Frame 2596M… very close numbers…..first registered 28/3/29
    Unfortunately I have no history with my Squirrel…that would have been a nice surprise if it was my bikes paperwork !
