  1. The past few weeks I have been working on a new ignition for the flat head models using the PM-05 ignition. Our goal is to remove the entire cable operated "points" type system and replace with a C5 ignition (Power Arc based). Since many of these will end up in non-English speaking countries, and probably in small villages, we insist on creating a kit that does not require any drilling or tapping, no camshaft modifications, and could be reversible. Easy to install, easy to use! Ken and Lorne Ulrich have engines, cams, and motorcycles for this project. I live about an hour away so we've been using U2 Cycles as our "home base" with my materials. What else can you do when the weather is -15 F? First we measured the cam end (inside and out) and all critical heights. Using our existing C5 Ignition kit we created spacers and a new part to hold the encoder disc. The cams on the flat head engine are not threaded for a screw. Today Lorne and I installed and made notes to change a few small things. My machinist is now making a few parts so we can test several designs to securely hold the encoder disc. I am very pleased with the outcome so far, and Lorne was a big help as usual. Even though Ken is on vacation in Texas, we decided to share a few pictures with the forum. While I make the parts, Lorne is focusing on getting one of their flat heads up and running. When the weather gets above zero we can test ride.
