Townmate Ignition Coils

Post  JohnW on Fri 28 Jul - 22:38

Has anyone changed the HT lead on the ignition coil? These look to be molded in rather than screwed in like the plug cap. Original leads are rubber so can deteriorate with age.

No John, haven't changed one before. What is it that you want to do?

I have used two coils on another motorcycle (Greeves twin) the Yamaha coils are a good substitute for 53 year old Villiers ones. I had a number of spares from T80's so used 2 of these. The original leads are rubber so would up grade to new PVC if the leads could be removed. On the Villiers ones the leads screw onto a central screw in the coil. A assume the Yamaha ones are the same, but did not want to damage them if they were molded in.

If you have a problem with the high voltage cable that connects the ignition coil with the spark plug cup , you can remove the plug and pass a heat shrink outside the old cable.
Then you warm it up to tighten and you're ok.
Τhe heat shrink must be flexible.
