HT cable location

Post  rvracing on Wed Sep 18, 2013 8:00 pm

hi all . as part of my ( sensible mods) additions, i would like to change the HT cable on my 3 speed villiers fb falcon, it looks like the ht lead passed into the rear of the mag housing , and seems to start to unscrew, not wanting to push it to far without advice, is this how you would go about changing the lead? does is unscrew? thanks all:D

HT lead

Yes the Bakelite rose unscrews , then inside of it there is a spring loaded contact , up the inside of this is a small brass screw, you will need to remove this screw with a small electrical screwdriver to change the lead. You cannot remove the lead on its own without unscrewing the whole assembly

thanks for that. as they say, im learning, i must say, having had a meddle with and read about thease little bikes, i can see there was some good ideas around in the mid 50,s. mine has an original unmolested wiring loom, with the old school soft rubber type insulation, all i have had to do is add a battery from a yamaha dt 175. however im slightly concerned about the rectifier, its still working ok, 6.5 volts ish, i feel i need to arm myself with a replacement soon, ebay has proved fruitless for now, i have thought about building my own full wave bridge rectifier costing pence, advice on this will be very welcome rob Very Happy

Rob.
Check out Alan Osborn's website for all things electrical. http://www.aoservices.co.uk/
He sells a small solid-state rectifier for a few pounds and will provide a revised wiring diagram for your Falcon.
