Hi Guys,
had a little drawback yesterday. Letting the engine run it stoped for no obvious reason.
After some investigation i found the dizzy finger damaged.
The pom from melted and the electrode came loose  :zap:

The design was bad and i did it new as shown on the drawing attached.

I didn't have time to post when you finally got it running like it should five days ago - but it was great to see and hear that you found the solution and I'm sure you will solve this one too (though it should be a lot simpler)  :praise2:

Michael,
That is one sweet running engine. I am sure you will sort out the distributor rotor.

Fabulous, lovely exhaust note and totally free from any mechanical clatter. I love it! You must be delighted with that!

Nice work! And the engine purrs like a cat. Wish if today small inline 8 engines were still produced for cars or motorcycles.
Any plans to get the engine running again on the speeduino?
