How to build & power tune distributor-type ignition systems

£9.99

Product description

This text provides expert practical advice, from an experienced race engine builder, on how to build an ignition system that delivers maximum power reliability. Cutting through the myth and hyperbole, Des Hammill tells the reader what really works so that they can build a system without wasting money on parts and systems that simply don't deliver. The text also discusses ignition timing and advanced curves for modified engines. The book applies to all four-stroke gasoline/petrol engines with distributor-type ignition systems, including those using electronic ignition modules. It does not cover engines controlled by ECUs (electronic control units).

This soft-bound book is in good used condition showing some minor shelf wear to the cover and edges of the pages. Given its age there is also some age-related yellowing of the interior page edges which are otherwise in very good condition. It is packed with black and white photographs.
