I wouldn't be concerned with 12.0, but I would expect mid 12's. Given that the battery just came off of a 14V float and the load is relatively light (.33AH), I would expect around 12.5 for a new battery.

A no load test straight off a float charge should be above 13 volts. A fully charged lead acid battery, after stabilizing, should be around 12.8.

Time to revive the EDIS discussion.
I just ordered the new Mk-2 Megajolt, promised shipping April 20, 2018.
https://www.autosportlabs.com/produc...ired_ignition/
A pull from the link:

"Improvements in the new Megajolt/E MK2
The new Megajolt/E MK2 has been evolved to add the features you’ve asked for, while making the system more robust and compact:

Hard Rev Limiter included!
USB interface for ease of use: No drivers needed for Windows 10; easy to install drivers for previous versions of Windows.
Status LEDs for RPM and Ignition Advance signals to aid in diagnostics
Improved and ruggedized power supply and enhanced transient protection on inputs
More compact: Just 85 x 85mm
100% compatible with previous generation Megajolt/E and Megajolt Lite Jr V4 – drops right in!"


Dan, I sent you an email requesting the waterjet cutting files for the two types of trigger wheels, if you are still offering?
I've let this project slip while other ones somehow took over, but I'm looking at a couple of old Bendix magnetos that want some 500 hour $$$, so now would be a good time to invest those same $ in a (presumably) more permanent solution.

You're welcome to them, but they must be on my hard drive at the office. Can't find them here at home. I'll look later today.

In the meantime, I know I sent copies to Mike Starkey and Graham in Oz (Airtractor8).

Good. Send a copy back to me too, so I don't need to redraw.
