Replacing points with ignition module

Ignition points and condensor can be replaced on older kart motors with universal ignition modules. Sometimes setting up points, or even finding them can be a hassle … and then there is the reliability factor… one solution is to use an ignition module instead. The vintage appearance of your engine will be unaffected with a module hidden under the flywheel and/or flywheel air shroud cover.

Here’s the aftermarket external ignition modules used by most:
-Rotary “Nova II” module; P/N 8786
-Stens “MegaFire II” module; P/N 440-465
-Oregon “Universal Ignition Module”; P/N 33-053 (or 147-020)

I haven’t completely verified this, but the Stens and Oregon units appear to be the same module.

The only issue I have seen with these modules is adjusting or determining ignition timing. A timing light must be used to verify actual timing. On some of the older kart motors (West Bend & Power Products), the coil position is adjustable so it can be moved to change the timing when using an ignition module. On McCulloch engines, the coils are somewhat fixed in position … so other means must be used to create adjust-ability … like increasing coil / bolt clearances or making offset flywheel keys with various offsets.
