Interesting, I always replace the CH ignitions with newer ones of newer design, typically from RcExcel (Todd Syssa).

Jerome, this is enormously ironic because the RCEXL is a direct copy of the latest CH ignition circuit design.

I prefer the CH because the I prefer the fully shielded metal box (vice the "metallicized" plastic of the RCEXL) and the CH can be repaired, while the RCEXL circuit is potted in epoxy.

The RCEXL is really good btw, otherwise CH wouldn't sell it.

There's a higher capacity CPU in the CH than the RCEXL

Great to hear. I have been having better luck with the RCEXL than the CH ones, even if it is the same design. Todd has been very good in providing me with exactly the ignition I wanted, proper spark plugs (CM-6) and even the rings to modify the BME to take smaller plugs.

To be honest, I might be swayed by the visual aspect of it all - the CH boxes look kind of old...

Tired old man, send me a PM with your address. I'll get that ignition to you...

ANyone have a picture of the way they have there mechanicle
ignition setup for there 2-needle carb for the 1.60 os twin?

I am converting my old air-bleed carb for the new one....and
the control arm for the carb is different. So I will have to construct
a different one....

Considering screwing a 3mm bolt into the setscrew to go threw a
servo horn/control arm so I can adjust the placement for both....

Anyone think this will hurt the carb??
Cause issues with the settings when I take out the set screw(while replacing it with a bolt)??

I looked at the diagram of the carb, and I just do not want to have to try and reset EVERYTHING....

Thanks..

Wow what a difference between boys and girls, as on pain of death some would never reveal their age, much less to the internet world. And here I was feeling sorry for myself thinking I was old at 68. Sure hope I'll be up and about like you guys when I start hitting your numbers.
