By heating the solder butter you already get a binding between the two surfaces you are soldering at the same time the "bad" stuff evaporate. Adding the lead will stop the corrosion.

You can use a 3/8 wide tape to block the end of each coil.

If your engine is a 1927 you can easely find a good working generator and mount it on the engine the original way. No belt needed!!!

Lucky there were no injurys, I was there before. To repair it, you will need to take it all apart.

Re: Rear lowering brackets

Two year ago I rebuild a 1920 frame from a speedster.
The change was 5" .
The original frame was rusted so far that it needed a replacement.
The rear is done as the old one . For the front I used parts I found 5 or 6 years ago on Ebay.

I like the cast iron pistons.
If it was mine and the cilinders are not bad, I should go just for a set new rings and keep the iron pistons.
