    Another Knucklehead Build

    Thanks for explanation Terry. Back in my younger days I was a drag racer and used MSD ignition systems. With an MSD you always need a "load" if it was powered up and the engine turned over. Otherwise you'd fry it. I saw quite a few guys pull the coil wire and use the starter to turn over...

I don't know what you are using for an ignition system but...

    Ford Quadricycle

    Hello, I realize I'm rather late in joining this conversation, but I was wondering how to go about getting plans/drawings for the Quadricycle. I've been unable to figure out how to get the original George De Angelis plans or the plans developed for the New England Institute of Technology...
