Re: Mixing ignition systems

Thanks Andrew, I suspected that might be the case. I have a new coil and condenser, so maybe I 'll try and rebuild it as a villiers system.

Mixing ignition systems

Hello again after a long break, I am servicing my engines. I have been using a wipac system on my TC102. But I have a villiers flywheel that has much better magnetism. Can I use it on the wipac ignition plate?

Re: hot drive shaft tube

I'm not saying I've seen or felt hot gasses coming out: I'm just trying to find a reason why the gear lever and drive tube would get so hot that I can barely touch them. the locating screw I mentioned is the one that prevents the flywheel from moving out of timing position, under the base plate.

Problem is, the longer bushes are hard to come by ( 23 mm). I,m wondering if there is a clever way to get over this? Some way of...
