    Good reason to go to a fully electric sparf curve I would say.

    And just what is it you have "done"? Pertronix, Dr. Juan, or ??? I have yet to do my distributor and it was sent to the good Dr (RIP) a few months ago so ??? It is not important as it was a "spare" that I was going to finish, then swap into the installed motor.

    That is my spare Pertronix. The good Dr Juan (RIP) had my magnet for this unit, along with my other distributor and a couple thermostats.
    I have decided that, since I may never hear from or see my parts, that I can buy a replacement magnet or try to build my own. I'm actually working on the magnet now (as in I took a break to check this forum). I have the drawing for the magnet housing and little magnets on the way from some other country. I won't be able to finish the magnet for a couple weeks because of the shipping delay.

    My first incarnation of the magnet housing was off by .05mm (too small). The next one should fit better.

    I'm toying around with making a wasted spark pick up. I don't know how accurate the signal will be so I will have to test it before actually installing it in a car. Simple design, though. Two pick up units at 90 degrees to each other and a double sided magnet (as opposed to a four sided one). Long way off, though.
