Joe, What are your plans on the tungsten contacts for the points? I had looked them over and wondered about 1/8"dia TIG welding electrode. But I'm not sure how that would cut the 100% is super brittle. The 2% thoriated (sp) is not as bad. But if those options do not work I have tons of tungsten scrap at work. I can get a few pieces of. It is 92% pure machines like cast iron. I think the 2% would probably work best but let me know.
Does anyone involved with the team build already have a running IC engine
Reason I ask is I built a transistorized ignition a few months back. It worked well on my test engine (junk yard two stroke) but I was never able to test it on an engine known to be a good runner. Problem I had was with high RPM but the carb was shot on the engine. If anyone has any ideas PM me.
