You do. A very nice engine indeed.
The Petter A1 is a very underrated engine and in my opinion a far superior engine to start off with.

To save starting another thread, just want to check if it's a case of bending the silver coloured clip enough to release the HT wire centre core so I can replace the HT lead without damaging the coil.

On the wico mags I have taken apart, the coil cover is where the HT lead attaches and there is a small brass tang (for the want of a better word) that connects the coil to the cover,

Hope I have the right end of the stick with what your asking,

Chris

The 'clip' is just the core of the ht lead, stripped back and tinned.
It's passed through the little hole in the coil tag and bent so it holds onplece.
Just carefully snip the wire and lift away. Do not be tempted to solder the new wire to the tab. Just fit new wire the same way this is fitted.

Thanks for the pointers, just got to decide whether to go plain black or one of the leads with a bit of colour as the ones I've seen others use look quite nice.

I have been tempted with the coloured over-braided type, but always shy away as they look less than brilliant once dirty.

I like the Hyperlon HT leads as they are more flexible and you can get them with tinned stranded copper cores.
