New version of Homelite 45

Yes, I'm using the stock carb. You are correct, you will only need to tap two holes in the boss and make 2 gaskets.

New version of Homelite 45

I did it. I have a milling machine and lathe combo. If you don't have the equipment, I might be able to make another one.

New version of Homelite 45

Scratch Built Ignition???

I do plan to put the ignition in an aluminum box to help cut down on interference. No, I haven't flown with the ignition yet, but plan to do so soon. I will post the results.

Scratch Built Ignition???

The plug gap doesn't seem to be critical at all. That coil throws a pretty good spark. This outfit is supposed to be pretty efficient, I can only tell you that I'm using a 1400 MAH battery pack and...

You are correct, I'm not running a shielded wire, but I am running a carbon core wire and a resistor plug. The Bolly prop, 20X8 is turning 7200 RPM.

Scratch Built Ignition???
