should I use a Hi output Boyer ignition or Sparx?
also would consider a Joe Hunt magneto....If i use Joe Hunt does that eliminate Boyer and Sparx.
Thanks VETS!

You might be referring to two different parts.

Sparx and Boyer both make electronic ignitions; I prefer Sparx.

Sparx also makes alternators; one of which is high output.

If you use a magneto, you don't need the electronic ignition or the alternator, unless you want to run lights; if so, you need an alternator of some sort.

;ive used both sparx and boyer iggys,i prefer the sparx,you can get one on ebay with new coils for about $140,they are easy to install,the joe hunt magneto ive also used,single set of points easy to set,but...............new they cost about $700,you can get a used one off ebay but....you really need to know what your looking at and ask alot of questions,most used ones dont have all the parts you need or are not working correctly ie point shaft bushing may be worn,mounting plate to timming cover missing,or the high voltage electric componet that your spark wire connect to are shot,and you would be paying $400 or more for that.ive run most times a sparx with tympanium unit.have fun if you need help,i can prob help,have fun!!!!!
