Cutout for magneto

Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.

I need to wire a cutout for the magneto on the flat track bike. There is an obvious stud on the casing - does this serve that function?
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Yes, when you ground the stud it will kill the engine.

That's what I thought, but it pays to check..

I assume it works the same way as the equivalent stud on the PAL magnetos found on older Jawas - by earthing the LT coil of the magneto?
