Re: Those with Light Speed Electronic Ignition...

Hi Corbin,

 

I do not have this type of system, but I do have one side with  a high energy fixed-advance electronic ignition (the other side is a mag). I have my coil on the firewall with a dedicated blast tube to cool it and also a blast tube on the computer controller.  I would be concerned about heat soak on your coils as you have them mounted. Coils get hot. You probably need to mount some blast tubes on the top of your cowl or coming from the carbon plenums in order to keep the coils cool. Since your cylinder cooling is done via plenums, the air above the engine is stagnant and gets hot, hotter still with the coils there.

 

Also, I think the horizontal aluminum plate is going to vibrate like crazy with the weight of those coils on the ends. Expect it to crack in the center after a while unless you put some kind of silicone foam support between the coils and the engine case to damp their vibration.

 

Cheers,

Jay

For those interested,  here is where I have decided to mount the ignition coils. Both are below the highest point (the fuel spider).   The two that are mounted to the aluminum plate (nearest the magnet plate) will actually be mounted below the plate;  I didn't have the right hardware so just temp mounted for the photo.

Thanks, Jim...I tugged on them today and was thinking I should secure them more than how they arrived.  I will do that tomorrow.

Rick I did that too as I thought that would be the fail point but it wasn’t the spade to connector that failed, it was the crimp
to wire.

Hey Corbin,

Pay special attention to those spade connectors you crimped onto the coil ends of the RG Cables from the Plasma 3’s. Check and pull on those connections to make sure all wires are tight. If even one connection comes loose inside the crimp, the engine can and will run rough, until you turn that ignition off.  I found out the hard way over the Badlands of South Dakota headed for Rapid City. Once I shut down #1, #2 Plasma ran fine.

When we got to Rapid City, I pulled the cowl and started investigating. Couldn’t see anything amiss so I started pulling on the spade connectors At the coils. One wire slipped loose but was still sitting in the connector, crimped on a new one and flew on. I think I had about 300 hours on the ignitions when it happened. This a weak spot in the system, IMO.

Both Plasma 3’s Ignitions have performed flawless since.

One possible issue.  After shut down the area at the top of the cowl gets very hot!  I always try to point the Q into the wind and open the oil check door to try and keep that heat down.  Coils may not like that heat much?  You may want to put a thermocouple up there to see what it's doing.
Fly Safe,

Actually Richard you included the new nose great on the purchase of my plane. So yes I did pay for it. I'm more than happy to post the years worth of messages where you promised to deliver over and over and then ignored me when I asked for it. So I would suggest you not even try to lie about Richard.
