I just missed out on another one a couple of weeks previously by £2, determined not to be outbid on this one - up to a point- and got it for £113 (or $147) plus mail costs. They seem quite easy to come by at the moment, currently FIVE complete KC1s on ebay UK.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=BTH+KC1+magneto&_sacat=0

Only one of these already has the manual advance end plate - I sent the vendor a message asking what condition it was in and got no reply, so didn't bother with it.

There's a racing version of this magneto around too, the BKH1-TT. I am unlikely ever to find one.

Just for the record I thought I ought to mount the thing properly.

So here it is with no visible means of support.



Remember this?



That's how this works.



the main reason for the bolt-on test was to check that my attempts at machinging were accurate enough for the mag drive pinion and the idler pinion to mesh properly.

Fits pretty well. And relax...
