B1 Ignition Module Works!

Recommended Posts

Just tilled the garden with my B-1 and the "type II" ignition module installed. Works great! The engine does start slower, as discussed earlier here, but that is a small price to pay for good running. It is cool out (about 60°F) but I don't think another 30 to 35° in the Summer will make a difference. I know some prefer a battery & coil ignition but I like the capability to run without a battery if necessary. I suspect Al is correct when he advised that my missing problem could be excess axial end play on the camshaft that failed to properly activate the points when the cam shifted. I have tried everything else over the years and nothing has worked to date except the ignition module which eliminated the points. Sorry Dutch, I like my old B-1 FDT. Cheers,

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
