6 Volt Positive Ground CDI

Here is the start of the project. I'll be using a Tiger SST CDI case and make new end plates to mount the transformer and perf board. Ordered all electronic components except the storage capacitor which I already have. Plan to mount the power transistors on an aluminum plate that will slide into the case like the original.

Case, end plates (to be remade), perf board, storage capacitor, in/out cable, and mounting hardware.

Visit to Alan's place

I visited Alan over in Central Point a while ago to see his cars and trucks. I drove MPH there so he could get an idea what his Ms will be like. Had a great time chatting about all kinds of stuff.

This was growing just outside his property. I thought that these were only on the East coast. Must have been some super bird to fly all this way and then poop.
