    hi all i purchased a 1934 Lister l Ricardo end of last year and over the winter renovated it and showed it at bidford last weekend but only ran half a day and expired!! it has lost spark- so this week i cleaned it and rebuilt it and bench tested it and it worked fine for about five minutes (using a drill at low speed) then died i believe its the coil in the armature shorting internally?it still has a very very weak spark and have double checked BOTH brushes are in good condition so can anyone recommend a good place to get the armature rewired with a new condenser? money is a bit tight at mo so any help would be appreciated
