Hey guys, i'm trying to clean up the metal parts on the exterior of my coils before testing them and sending them off to be rebuilt. Is it ok to take a file to these parts? Thanks in advance/

Why not try a little emery paper first. If you blast through the solder with a file you will probably have a tough time re-soldering without tar contamination.

You may be making it harder for your coil re-builder by removing metal. If all you are doing is an electrical test, all you need to do is clean one spot on each of the the top contact and the bottom contact so your test probe can make contact.

Hey, can anyone get the word "contact" into a sentence four times?

Thanks. Yeah i'm just trying to clean up the outside the box stuff in order to get a clean surface to test the charges onalso, if the box is falling aprt, not broken, but coming apart at the notches, is the coil still rebuildable? (just need to reglue/tar the notches right)?

oh and: "Contact contact contact, contact."

or "He went to contact the contact ranger station to remind them to contact the neighboring contact station on the other mountain." There, I did it!
:-)

You should check to make sure the contacts on the switch are working, and the magneto contact is contacting the coil ring, then make sure each coil is making contact with the contacts on your coil box (3 contacts per coil) - being especially wary for broken contacts in the coilbox - before you contact one of the contacts on the resource page to redo the contacts on your coils.

(I think that's way more than 5!)
