Jensen CI Special

Post by John Ryan »

I have acquired a Jensen Channel Islands Special. Its had little use and starts easly and runs very well. Apart from the http://www.modelenginenews.org/cardfile/cis.html Peter Chinn article I found on the net I don't have any info on the engine. Im using a TIP 32 transistor switched by the points to drive the coil.
Im hoping someone can help with
Points and plug gap and valve clearance settings
What voltage to run the sparks (Ive used 3.6v and 4.8v for starting).
Any information appericated .
Thanks
John

Most plugs and points will operate around the 16 thou mark.
Valve clearance perhaps 2 thou.
