Cruiser Forks wanted

Post  Mikexyz on Tue Jun 28, 2011 3:28 pm

Has anyone, (JH) got a good set of forks for Cruiser 75?
Mine have had the seals pushed up to the yoke out the way as the stantions are very rusty.
Tried polishing but still very rough.

Also is the HT coil fitted to the 1H engine special?
The engine fires up beautifully if I wire the points in 'parallel' to the coil, but if I connect it in 'series', (as per manual) then the spark is feeble, I'm using the coil that came with the bike which is a standard 6 volt type.

regards, Mike

1H Ignition coil

Post  Mikexyz on Wed Jun 29, 2011 10:30 pm

I've sorted out the HT coil, it is a special and not the same as used in 2T, 3T or 4T.
A standard 6 volt coil will work poorly if used, it wont charge the battery as the HT voltage has to jump the spark gap + the points because they are wired in series; if the wiring is altered so that the points are now in parallel the coil/ignition works fine but the battery doesn't get charged at low revs.
I've constructed the tester as shown in the Villiers engine manual to test the above + also try out a solution using a dual HT output, 6 volt ignition coil which connects to the original wiring with no modifications; works a treat , gives a good spark + charges the battery at tickover.
If anyone is interested I'll post details.

Still after a good set of forks.
