1979 bean can internals

Postby MallyMcD » Tue Apr 14, 2020 11:43 am

Does anyone have a diagram or pictures of the inside of a 1979 'bean can' points ignition canister? I have inherited one in pieces (I think it's all there) and can't see how the bob weights and their springs fit.

This page relates to a 'Hall effect' Bean can but the advance mechanism is, I believe, the same...


Hope it helps
