>>the 220n could suggest 220 nanofarads, which is .22 microfarads, which is the sort of value a points condenser should have.
>One wire was connected to the bike chassis.
Points capacitor would be in parallel with the points. Points would earth to the engine, which is attached to the chassis. If one capacitor wire is attached to the chassis, the capacitor would be in parallel with the points if the other capacitor wire was attached somewhere between mag. coil and points.
Would I be right in remembering it's the Beagle that requires the crankcase to be split to reach the points? If so, and if the points didn't have a cap. originally to prevent arcing, possibly the "PHILIP" is a cap. and a po attempt to increase the points life?
>Definitely PHILIP (singular).
Far Eastern knock-off of a "Philips" part?
