Hi Jan,

Frank and I both converted to an electronic ignition on our 1927/28 Flyers a few years back. These were of course not of the distributor type. I used a CDI system developed by Powerdynamo.biz that has a fixed iginition point (do not ask me how many degrees….). In my case I also used a toothed belt to drive it from the flywheel. The unit was fitted in a converted BTH magneto housing and does not require a battery. Franks was the same but in a custom housing and driven by chain.

Both Scotts started and ran very well with it. I had a whole article on this on my old website but have not yet have the time to convert that to m new site. I will try and do so soon if you are interested.
