Subject : Ignition Basics & P-Mag timing
Host : Bill Repucci
When : Thursday Feb 1st at 7pm Pacific / 10pm Eastern
How : Webex online -
Recording : https://youtu.be/u-peJetS028

Here is the agenda from the presentation
  • Introductions

  • Retard Timing
  • Advance Timing
  • Charge Density vs. Fuel-Air Burn

If it goes over an hour, I’m either talking too much or you are asking a lot of questions!

Thanks for setting this up Andy!

As you can see by the agenda, most of the discussion will be about ignition timing and the latter part about the P-mags and setting their timing to match your engine.

Default recording?

Cool - glad you are doing this. It happens right in the middle of my beauty sleep, which I badly need, so will it be possible to view a recording?

Mickey,

And my beauty sleep but we figured with this timing, we would catch most of the US. Europe, AU, NZ, etc. are kind of left out in the cold on this one. Sorry about that.

We were talking about recording it. WebEx has a record feature, so if all goes well, we will post it. That or we might do a second one, over a weekend, date to be determined. If we do that, I'll try to schedule it so we can cover those in the old world and in AU & NZ.

(BTW, you have heard most of what we are going to talk about over the phone.)

Thanks Bill - I'll keep my ears open for a recording, and if I do happen to wake up at 0400 for some reason that day, I'll hop on the call. Always happy to get another chance to digest some good information.

Default Thanks

to Bill and Andy for the presentation. I missed the first half, but it was well worth the visit for what I did hear and see.

Thanks for all of you that joined us this evening and brought out some good questions! We enjoyed Bill's presentation and had a good chat about some of the topics around electronic ignitions and PMAGs.

For those that didn't make it, here's a link to the recording.

Thanks Andy for hosting this discussion, posting the video, and for everyone who took time out of their evening to attend. If there is enough interest, we can do a second talk scheduled to cover Europe, AU, and NZ.

There were many good questions, which is always appreciated and helpful to everyone.

Feel free to contact me, if you have any additional questions.
