Charles, I have no idea. I have been building engines almost steadily for 14 years, and this is the first time I haven't felt like doing any more. I'm enjoying the break, but don't know what I will do next.---Brian
Hi Brian, I'm in Toronto, a 'new' amateur machinist, and rather ambitiously my first project is a gas turbine (jet engine). If you are looking for inspiration, try something like that. 100,000 rpm....!

Brian,
Another book if your are interested in ignition systems is "Ignition Coils and Magnetos in Miniature" By Bob Shores
Three book I have.
Cheers

Bought a copy end of last week and finished reading it today (skimmed the building instructions some). Good review for me and an entertaining read! I'd disagree with his view on condensers not protecting points, but I enjoyed his out of the box explanations that made me think.
