replacing the Honda coil HT lead

Postby rendrag » Tue May 22, 2018 9:37 pm

I am trying to contact mr.Turk who I believe wrote an article on how to replace the original copper core HT lead and replace it with a Magnecor lead, can you help.
(the copper core lead is I believe the main cause of radio interference)

I think the jist of it was to dig out all the glue from the socket in the mag, then the new lead was screwed into a spike in the socket then re epoxy in.
Alternatively you can cut the lead closee to the socket and attach the magecore ht to this

Or even easier put braid around the lead and ground the braid.
