Title: A10 Electronic Ignition
Post by: Grumpy Geezer on 05 December, 2017, 12:24:49
I am currently restoring an A10 1959 Super Rocket and I am getting contradictory opinions regarding Electronic ignition! What type can be recommended or perhaps I can get members advice. I intend to use the existing Dynamo and fit a belt conversion to increase the charging rate etc. and intend to discard the magneto and fit a replacement unit to suit electronic ignition. can I have advice on what success or not anybody has had with these kits. 3 or 4 suppliers I have looked at; all give different advice regarding coils, wiring, etc. etc.

I am also looking to fit an electronic ignition to my A10 Goldenflash 1961,  It will be running on 6V and I would like to know the best make to fit.

Cheers

I am very happy with my K2F, but if I was going electronic I would choose the BTH;

No worries about flat batteries or failing dynamos causing ignition failure.
