Hi Guys, I too will be making an entrance in spark ignition. Through an estate I have received the following engine with historical model, an original Reg Truman Special built by the designer. This NZ design won the NZ national texaco event back in the 1940s. I am told this is a Ohlsson side port but don't know the size as yet. I am picking up the model (along with two other vintage models!) next week while away for Christmas. Won't get a chance to work on them as work is taking me away until the end of February. After many years in storage it will be interesting to see what condition the wiring is, etc.

Appreciate the advice of retarding the spark before starting. Don't want to lose any digits! I'll try an get a photo up of the engine in due course. Allen
