    There is plenty of good pics here of spark plug location & even a distributer diagram, but what has always baffled me is how is a magneto wired? :huh:

    A mag is essentially a distributor that doesn't need a battery. Wired(Secondary) the same as a distributor. Single wire with a switch activates it. On the old time diggers, while being pushed, turn mag on, open fuel valve and hang on.

    Here are two more bad ones. Actually the art work on the Customized Corvette is not bad. It's the car itself that ruins that one. 



    Could you imagine showing up at a contest in box stock catagory with that vette? The guys in the background are saying "And he drives that on the street?"

  3. I searched on here but photo bucket has killed most of the photos.

    Well Alix, I agree, the method you show is a lot better than some kit.

    But Alix,  the way you tell us to do a search on a 'how to' kind of sucks.

    You're kind enough to show you're stuff, just not so nice when it comes to your secrets.

    Is it so difficult to communicate?

    Thanks Michael.........sort of.
