Hello I am a new T'Cat owner but I have to admit now I only bought it for bits for a project I have underway.

I am based in Middlesbrough in Cleveland

I have lots of bits left that are cluttering up my garage and will be itemised and put up for sale shortly.

I do have a few issues with my T'Cat aswel main one being that it wont start.
I have working coils as per check in haynes manual, working started motor as it's from another motor I had, new spark plugs, fuel getting in but no spark wall

Any help is accepted oh an I need a new rotor aswell if anybody can point me in the direction of one.

Hi & welcome to the forum. I am a bit concerned the crank may be bent
looking at what is left of the magneto. You may get away with it though.

Hi bud. Cool

I recently stripped out and replaced the wiring harness on mine and had no spark either, turned out it was a bad connection on the Voltage Regulator/Rectifier.
Might be worth looking into.

Hi Street,

Welcome to the site. All the best with your project. Your pics remind me of how my 'cat looked a bit like that after I high-sided it! Shocked It's not a nice look, and not clever. Embarassed The 'cat is no more, but I got the majority of my bits from the BMF show. Excellent auto jumble section.

So where abouts in Middlesborough are you? I started my days in Nunthorpe!

Chris
