Brake union thread & sizes

Hi me again, the demonstrator is "fighting back" but progress is being made.

Can anyone help with the thread type and sizes for each brake master cylinder, can't find it in the manual?

My new coils will not fit where Norton planned, any suggestions?

Re: Ignition and Voltage Regulator units.

Minimag did email saying coils and leads etc had to be changed. I will need to replace the coils anyway as one is way out on resistance and I would change the HT leads as a matter of course, the IP2 has not been taxed since 2011. I think the previous owner must have kept the engine lubricated as it ...

I have just been given 2 spark plugs for the IP2. These are NGK 7471, are they really for the rotary? Nothing like the plugs in my engine nor my previous IP2 [why did I sell her} nor in the manual.
