    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a Wipac Manual for a CJ magneto? I acquired two over the weekend but one is pile of parts. :roll:

    download the jap 4/3 manual it covers the CJ also have a look in the petter archive (link on the main page)

    There fairly simple mag's, the only tricky bit is getting the spring back on

    Have a look here http://www.internalfire.com/ifod/mantree.php

    yes its the spring on the impulse coupling that has us stumped. Othewise its straight forward. Nicely made magneto too!

    Also discovered that the CJ coil will fit inside a Lucas SR1 magneto and with a small modification to the HT connection tab in the SR1 cover it can work as a replacment for the SR1 coils which are now unobtainable here in South Africa.
    At an exchange rate of ZAR 19 to 1 GBP it's now not econmical to even think of importing any ex UK.

    Cheers :D

    I'm still struggling with the contact breaker assembly.

    Those manuals don't really explain that part beyond basic maintenance (unless I have missed something somewhere).

    Does anyone have a picture of the complete assembly. Unfortunately both out CJ mags came with their impulse couplings pulled apart so I have no reference :(

    I'll take another look at it later this week and see if I am still struggling. I didn't see those pages when I searched the archive but it's possible they have been added subsequently. (or I am lousy at searches :lol: :oops: )
