Default FM ZC 208 Electronic Ignition

Here are some pics of the starfire 600 ignition system. It is exactly like the murphy 601 by the way. I got a real good deal from Reed Engine and Pump Repair. This is the closest to a bolt on right out of the box fire up the first time system I have ever had. Had to drill and tap 4 holes on the flywheels for the magnet bars. Everything else bolted on to existing holes with the brackets provided. I have never had an easier conversion kit than this. 100% worth the money. With the Impco carb idle speed can be adjusted as well as the fuel mixture making a more efficient running engine.

Glad it worked so well for you. We have sold and installed well over 1000, wish I'd kept the exact count. Remember to leave the mag drive in and in time as it is also the breather for the crankcase. We also have a mod we do that eliminates the mag drive and uses a breather mounted on the mag block off plate. Works even better.

Two questions... for this electronic ignition- is it self-powered, or does it require an external battery?

Second: About how expensive is something like this...

Third (yeah, i know, I said TWO questions...) For hand-starting, does it do an ATDC 'impulser' like function for hand-starting?

Self powered.

About the same price as two mag overhauls but guarantied to last a year. Common to do two mag repairs in a year to two. I've personally seen these run 7 years before service was needed.

Has an advance/retard built in.
