Re: How do you test a magneto coil ring?

Test to make sure the coils are isolated from the frame and no breaks between the coils. An ohmmeter works for this.

Re: Fumbled a piston

If it is just for running display I would use the piston after checking it over carefully and doing as Big hammer suggests. It will be easy on it since it won't be under load or speed.

Re: How are 28-29 and 30-31 radiators different?

I am beginning to think you should leave this part of the project until the body is in place. To get things running just use the radiator as is for now. I think you are working/worrying too far ahead.
