    Hi Bill,
    So you got one of the oldie Targets, like mine πŸ‘
    Later models dispensed with the centre Paxolin separator, so the field coil was wound as one.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Martin,
    Shame you didn't move my posts with the links to my Taycol restoration / conversions as well.
    So folks would know what this is all about.
    Attached pics of Colin's Taycol Supermarine both before and after my TLC πŸ˜‰
    4th pic shows the motor soaking in WD40, overnight, before dismantling started.
    Last pic shows the setup that I used to test the restored motor (fitted with ball races inside the old end coversπŸ˜‰) and Reverser conversion board.
    Video of the Test Runs won't upload I'm afraid, too large.
    Shame πŸ€” coz it clearly shows how the diode bridge in the converter board virtually eliminated the usual prolific Taycol sparking.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Ahhhh.
    The ever faithful Taycol.
    I bought my Taycol Target as a boy more years ago than I care to remember.
    Although not in current service it it fully serviceable and sits in its original box.
    A little gem of British engineering.
    Regards Bill.

    Hi Doug,
    I moved this to this thread as i don't want to hijack another members thread.


    RE :- Colin's Taycol Supermarine restoration.

    Great job.
    The satisfaction of getting hold of something old and tatty and not working then when completed it looks like new and works perfectly.

    I remember the days when you could actually repair things and they were made to last.
    Now it is repair by replacement.
