Item description for How To Build & Power Tune Distributor-Type Ignition Systems (Speedpro) by Des Hammill...
Expert practical advice from an experienced race engine builder on how to build an ignition system that delivers maximum power reliably. With the enormous amount of inaccurate information about ignition systems and the confusing choice of expensive aftermarket parts out there, which all claim to deliver more power, there's a need to get the real scoop. Des Hammill cuts through the myth and hyperbole and tells readers what really works, so that they can build an excellent system without wasting money on parts and systems that simply don't deliver.Ignition timing and advance curves for modified engines is another minefield for the inexperienced, but Des uses his expert knowledge to tell readers how to optimize the ignition timing of any high-performance engine.The book applies to all four-stroke gasoline/petrol engines with distributor-type ignition systems, including those using electronic ignition modules: it does not cover engines controlled by ECUs (electronic control units).

A average book Dec 4, 2005
I searched the index etc before buying so knew I thought ,What to expect in this book.It is mainly for basic single point distributors.It does tell you how to recurve a factory distributor.I would like to see what to buy in different points, hot coils and leads.How the top aftermarket point coils compare,how the analog vs digital multi spark boxes compare with points ,Crane,MSD,Mallory etc.Also tips on fusing and protecting Boxes/Modules like on the Century performance site would save tuners hundreds.I would like to find out when you need to go from points to a conversion kit, and pros and cons.(You can always get home redoing points vs a burnt out electronic system......)Also how to not waste money on trick of the week stuff or buying more than you need.I am going back and buying older books on this subject to learn more.If you have standard points,standard coils and just want to recurve the distributor then this is a good book.
