Dang, that runs nice. I could never get my odds and ends engine to run that well. Philip Duclos would be proud of you.---Brian

Thanks Brain
   The hall sensor and -L-Cheapo ignition board I made up made a big difference. I really like that set up. I made a few boards they are easy to put together and they drive a 12v coil. Plus if your engine stalls it cuts the current to coil. Plus it acts like a buz coil when in operation. Been playing around with those l cheapo boards for awhile. I plan on using them on my version of the hoglet engine.

Thanks Thomas
Yes the sound of a hit miss I could listen to all day. That's why I need to put it back on the shelve or I will not get anything done. LOL
