puch magneeto question

One of the magnetic plates attached to the inside of my '78 maxi's bosch flywheel has become loose, rubbing against the points. It seems that all I need to do is remove the flywheel and reattach the plate. Is that possible? how can i reattach?

It doesn't seem possible that the plate could rub against the points. It would have to hit the stator plate coils (primary ignition and lighting coils) first. But anyway, the thin plates are glued to the magnet core inside the flywheel, no screws. I would consider finding a new (used) one rather than trying to re-glue it. I would also expect to see other damage upon removing the flywheel if that plate came off with the engine running.

If you can't find a flywheel elsewhere, I will sell one for $10 plus shipping. You may well find one cheaper though.

it didn't come completely off, it just rubs against the points. and i caught it as soon as i heard it, so hopefully there isn't much damage elsewhere.

i'm waiting for a flywheel puller to come in the mail, so i'll make a more thorough inspection as soon as it arrives.

will your flywheel fit mine in case i cant reattach?

The flywheels are the same for 77 through 81 1-speed maxi and that is what I have. I also have a flywheel off a 2-speed. I will check to see if it is the same as that on the 1-speeds.

I'll save you the time.....They have different part numbers.

Re: puch magneeto question

I put a 2 speed flywheel on a 1 speed bike, it fits and works just fine, just FYI
