I apologise that this post may be a little off topic but I am trying to identify a twin cylinder magdyno that I have. The model is MN2 and the type is L and it does have an adv/retard in the normal format. I would appreciate any help that you can give me to say what motorcycles it would have been fitted to. Cheers, John
The MN2 was fitted to pre war Triumphs, Douglas twins and post war Royal Enfield twins...The L suffix denotes 'long dynamo' which makes it post war so a Royal Enfield Twin such as the Meteor is the most likely candidate if the drive end cover looks like a 'normal' magdyno..
When fitted to the Douglas the body and drive end cover were a rather odd shape with pointed 'extensions' that protruded horizontally and gave the drive end of the unit an odd 'diamond' shaped appearance...Ian
