Thread: The 5cc found!

hi Simon if you are interested my sea fury which has an ex chain saw engine in it i use a coil f rom a

scrap 25cc grass strimmer the coil is housed in the recoil starter frame if you remove the coil and then

remove the armature (that is the metal strips in the centre of the coil) you can then cut a square piece

of plastic to mount it and it works fine on a 4.5 volt batt but you must use a condenser if you use the

points I use this coil but it is linked up to a home made CDI unit so i dont need a condenser
