Snow tandem engine
« on: January 24, 2020, 02:17:41 AM »
Does anyone have a picture or drawing or description of how Doug Kelly utilized a point ignition on his original Snow tandem engine? He used the electronic ignition later. The electronic ignition is kind of fussy and I was thinking that perhaps the point ignition would be less fussy. I am not sure where and how to place the four lobe cam without it being unsightly.

Hi Gordan, after building the Snow engine with the ignition system from Roy, S/S, I can confirm it is really easy do go this road.
He offers a sketch how to make the disc with the magnet.

There is also a small hall sensor tester available in his shop, a very useful tool to check the timing without any high voltage in the system.
So by a beep and light you can exactly control the function and timing of your engine.   

Kind Regards
