Mixing ignition systems

Post by red42hj »

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?

Don’t think that will work. I believe the magnet(s) won’t be in correct position and also the flywheels are slightly different size.

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.
