Magneto Repairs and Services
Please telephone to discuss your magneto issues. I may be able to give a rough estimate over the phone even before you put your magneto in the post. The prices below are given as a guide and apply to the popular Lucas magnetos covering most of the jobs not normally undertaken by the home restorer.  If your magneto has not been restored before it will need the essential work highlighted in red below. Inevitably, your magneto will need a few other jobs but please don't think your bill is going to be hit by a string of 'add-ons'; the vast majority of magnetos passing through my workshop are repaired for less than £250; in fact some prices have been reduced recently as I now have a lot of parts made exclusively for me. I will contact you, after dismantling your magneto, to give a condition report and estimate. If you decide not to proceed there will be a nominal charge of £10 plus return postage.
 

Remember! No need to add VAT, what you see is what you pay!
