I'm very excited to see your progress and how this works out.

I'm particularly interested in the Piezo-Electric igniter. What kind is it and where are you getting it from?

Also, what are the bore and stroke of your scaled down engine?

Chuck

Hi Sorveltaja

Re: PTFE insulated Spark Plugs.

If you have access to it, there was a write up in Model Engineer 5 July 1991 on the subject.

Plug Thread was 5/32" x 40 tpi.

Might be interesting to you.

Very nice work, I am looking forward to see how the piezo works out, seems much simpler than coil/ battery.

I have been watching this unfold, but haven't chimed in until now. This is an interesting build. Thanks for taking us along on the journey!

BTW Hang in there, you'll figure out your ignition! When there's a will, there's a way.

Sorveltaja,

Keep at it mate, what I know about electricity could be written on the back of a postage stamp

I'm sure you'll figure it out and when you do, perhaps I can make something other than a diesel, (assuming the one I'm making works).

Bob
