feeling quite a lot better after starting meds again, was dumb of me to stop dead because I felt OK :
Been posting in various places, done a bit more with 'magic' ignition (if you don't know how it works, it may as well be magic ;D )
MK1 trigger rotor, can be machined to use stock advance mechanism which is what I'm going to do first to make sure components dont instantly fail (yep, I'll carry a points plate and points cam until I know for sure)
Same 'wheel, 3 different views
MK II wheel, fits under 'points plate. 2 different views
New 'points' plate with some Hall effect sensors. Way more components than basic ignition actually needs but it can be connected to an 'ECM' later
Need to check exact 90 degree offset, circuit boards will get a slight 'massaging'
Complete thing can be flipped over to use 'on top' with stock advance or underneath for (eventually) programmed ignition direct drive off cam
Yep, I'll have to make a 'proper' rotor with built in spacer to get gap down to 0.5~1.0 mm then I can start assembling some stuff.
Still waiting for a couple more electronic pieces (and some motivation to get red frame finished : )
Bit more done, the GM 4 pin ignition modules I was waiting for arrived. Mounted on a large heatsink, probably way more than they need , but, the cheap ones are known to fail if they get too hot. Supposedly they need about 9 sq/in, total area of fins is around 23sq/in. Still needs some clean up and thermal transfer paste under modules but that will be after I drill and tap mounting holes
Been playing with high speed micro drill (Dremel clone )
I'm in the process of making a 'drill press' so I can make some new emulsion tubes for VM carbs. Hoping I can mount magnetic rotor to it and check ignition will trigger at 28,000 rpm for testing
Being mounted on end of camshaft it will never see more than 6,000rpm (12,000 crank rpm) 8)
If it all works as expected it should spark all the way up, but, I think coil charge time may be too short, in that case I'll find out where it starts miss-firing
This is just a stopgap ignition while I'm working on programmable one
Brendon's bike has shocks from DCC, I find them way too stiff but he's happy with them
I fitted RSY Chinese shocks on mine, but I rebuilt them so they work like $300.00 shocks
'Blue Bike' is also getting a set, when I get around to doing something :
I was going to put them on top but now I'm doing something of a re-design although the one in pics will have magnets 'on top' as I already modified and epoxied the sensor in place, plus, I'm going to use original advance mechanism
Probably going to be a while, just can't seem to get a break.
Stepdaughter is moving back in with her 10yr old (her husband is a right dick they are losing house, he's going back to live with mum in Mass : )
We have a plumbing issue that needs fixing :
At least we have another bathroom to use so isn't total disaster (so far)
