    Supertigre missing ignition module

    Acquired a plane with a ST engine...a 2300, I believe. Have not taken it out yet. It was converted to CH Ignition back late 80's. Owner did not have the ignition module. Can I buy a generic module to replace? This spark plug is much smaller. Help! What are my choices if I want to use this engine?

    Thanks,
    JJ

    Rcexl has 1/8" spark plugs and ignitions to match.

    I believe it would have a 1/4x32 spark plug.

    I used to chuckle when you said that once you converted an engine, you had to babysit it for life. Guess you were right.

    Too much power is just about right.

    RE: Supertigre missing ignition module

    Thanks all. I took the engine out of the plane, and it is actually a ST 3000 with a Walbro Carb and what looks like a 1/4 inch thread spark plug. The aluminum prop drive disk magnet actually bumps the sensor when you turn around by hand after I took the prop off. Not sure why. Is that a problem?

    Have not checked on a new ignition unit yet. With this type conversion, can I use my regular 40:1 gas oil mixture as fuel? Any other advice to be aware of?

    Thanks guys,

    JJ

    RE: Supertigre missing ignition module

    The sensor needs to be moved back so the magnet doesn't hit it.

    Without needle bearings on the rod you are going to need to run 20:1 oil.

    At least 20x1 10x1 would be better

    Does your ST engine have Throttle coupled timing control?.Does the timing wheel move when you open the throttle.Most all of the RCEXL ignitions have electronic timing. These will work with your engine but you would have to lock the timing plate and remove linkage to throttle.
    Adrian at C&H can build you a ignition with out electric timing control.

    No it is not throttle coupled. Sensor disk does not move.
