Picked up a trashed Yamaha Bonanza 180 a year ago that came with no ignition components. I want to modernize it a little, and don’t want to run the original armature/points.
Trying to make something from other things. Scored a ‘80 Suzuki GS550 pulse generator for $15 and modified it to fit the shaft, but that won’t give me power, just a signal. Guess I could go total loss style, but I don’t really like the idea of having to solely rely on a battery, and that’d be one more thing I’ll have to buy. I’d rather spring for a mini rotor if anyone has ideas of how to make it work. It’s got a 180 degree crank with the shaft having a 17-19mm taper.
