never really was........ It was the WIRES from each pickup to each transducer, not the pickups themselves, those were the problem, and always will be until those original wires get replaced with FEP or similar jacketed wires.....

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I would share my experience.I bought some new Bosch pick ups, as pointed out at the start of this topic.
Just one small problem, how do you set up the new ones, yes the Bosch jig is the best ,but do you really need to spend £200 to purchase one? Anyway had the idea of producing a spigot and turned the diameters of 20 mm -02,( or 1 thou to our colonial friends),by 19 mm long ,and the other diameter 25mm - .02. These diameters will fit the outer bearing 20mm diameter and 25mm diameter for the rotor.Obviously the diameters must be concentric. Replicating the crank diameters.
The spigot is then assembled in to the bearing with the rotor on the 25mm diameter, then checked the gap between the pickups and the rotor,I found it to be around .35 (14thou). Doubled checked it with another rotor which gave the same gap. Disassembled the old pickups and replaced with the new ones, and setting the gap, to what was found previously. Job done.
I have come to the conclusion,the settings on the Bosch setting gauge is tight ,.04mm, due to the manufacturing tolerances of the rotor, to guarantee clearance/ correct fit. Yes my GTS is now working, had enough of bodging old wires on to new.
Thoughts?
