    Hello All.  I have recently acquired a 1935 Cruiser and I'm at the stage of investigation, to see what I have.  Amongst other things today, I've been looking at the electrics and Good news; I have a functioning ignition/light switch (although I need a better knob...)  Bad news; I can't see any way to get the points cover off the dynamo.  It already has a small crack in it and I can see that it's bakelite or similar, so I don't want to make it worse.  Ideas please!
    The list is growing, of smallish items that are missing, so I'll probably be putting an ad in the relevant section of the forum soon, but that can wait for now.  Thanks in advance for your help chaps. Cheers, Andy.

    Assume yours has the Miller Dyanmo with points in the end?
    Just swing the arm sideways that locks into the cap centre.
    The cover has a locating notch but will rock side to side and pull off.
    If you go back through my FB page to July and December you will find pictures. The condencer is inside that cap.

    Thanks Ken; I was sure that there wouldn't be any real mystery to it. I haven't been in the garage since Sunday, but I'll persevere when I do! Having said that, it does seem to be well stuck on, the reason for which may become apparent...

    Whoohoo, I managed to get the cover off! Boy, was it tight! There's a bit of 'canker' inside the dynamo, but I wouldn't have thought it would cause so much trouble. I only wanted to check the points etc, before I took it apart!
    Anyway, I've been a busy boy today and I now have the gearbox, dynamo, engine and other bits, sitting in a box waiting to be cleaned up before I tackle any serious strip-downs. Everything came apart fairly well, but I'm knackered after all that! Some serious thinking will now be done, while I decide on the next practicable step, considering the lockdown situation. Hmm...
