Engine Converting
« on: January 22, 2021, 12:28:05 pm »
Hi.
Here, information about my work over the past few months.
A motor system Hot Bulb engine from Germany transformed into Hit & Miss.
I used a mixer provided by Pm Research, a regulator of my stock and an electronic ignition with Hall sensor.
I built the muffler and installed the spark plug.
It works with synthetic gasoline "Aspen" (gasoline for mower, brush cutter, chainsaw.)

Regards Christian.

 The belt operated hit and miss governor with different size pulleys for different speeds is genius!
Very nice engine!
