Not being a Vincent owner and not being very knowledgeable about them I hoping some one here can answer the above question.
Thanks, Jim

Then they went over to coil ignition for easier starting on the series D . . . In their final year ( I think)

Thanks Bernhard & Eric,
That brings up another question. When did production start on the series D?
Thanks,
Jim

Thanks Bernhard!
I checked wikipedia but I am reluctant to trust their information.

Are you thinking of the song?

That line always jarred with me

No activity here for a few weeks, so I thought I'd add the conversation. After I converted over the the Lucas DKX2A distributor, it was natural to add a key switch.

With the stock Lucas mag, it is still possible to add a key switch if the switch could be made to lock in the closed "on" position. Connecting that switch to the optional Lucas cut-out cover on the mag would be quite effective. Essentially, a keyed kill switch.
