pickup coil mod..I'M LOST
 
Ive been looking at all of the posts on the pick up coil mod and I just can't seem to see what it is I am supposed to alter so we can get the smaller gap or, for that matter, which way the gap is. I need some help on this one

do a thread search for pick up coil clearance pics posted by abyssdncr
and when you do the mod make sure you bring the rotor around where you are gaping the pickup at the contact plate otherwise your gap will be way too shallow and you will knock the ends off of the pickup

ok...I'll try to explain it quickly for ya....

in the 3rd photo you can see the 2 pickups mounted at 8 o'clock and 10 o'clock. if you turn the engine by hand by using a socket wrench in the middle of the drum, you will see a metallic piece rotate around and come very close to the pickup coils.

If you align the coil with the plate as it rotates...that is the gap you are checking and re-setting.

The drawing shows how each mounting plate is modified to get the pickup closer to the moving "plate" as it passes them. The drawing is showing that you need to elongate the holes in the plate AND file the flat part of the plate (on both ends of each plate) to allow the gap to become smaller.

his drawing is only showing the top part of the plate as modified, but you need to do the same to both holes and ends of each plate.....for both pickups.

I hope this helps.

OK.. ive had to give up on the mod right now as the screws that hold the pickups will not break loose.. Can any kind of break-free be used there??
