Hello all. I own a Fairbanks Morse 208 Hit n Miss Natural gas engine 1943. 12 hp 6" single cylinder. 650lbs. And I want to make my own CDI for it. I have destructively analyzed the one that just failed and would love some help selecting components. Looking forward to meeting you all.

There are a few people on here who have already nailed down some very good designs. Cncengines.com is Roy's web site. He has been making CDI's for years. Dsage has posted designs and also circuit boards if you want to build one yourself. Do a search for ignitions and I'm sure more than a few will pop up.

Thank you very much. I look forward to learning more

This past Sunday, at our regular car Cruze-in, someone brought a couple of hit and miss engines and displayed them on his tailgate. The tag says Zanesville, OH., about 100 miles from Akron…. Small world. Welcome to the forum.

Cool. Wish I was there.
I’m making progress on my CDI.
I’m glad I found this forum.
