Following on from the rusty Rickman Metisse frame post I made - we have another slight quandary we'd like to get cleared up - on the same bike.
It's a T120R engine, and was set up without a battery - using the points etc. We got rid of all the old electrical sysytem -- all gone, and here's what we have to hand - all new parts.
1/ Tri Spark ignition
2/ Single phase 12v 16A stator
3/ Podtronics single phase power box (with capacitor)
4/ 2 x 6v coils
We can't find a wiring diagram to run it without a battery - but believe it is possible?
Lastly - we need a way of stopping the engine - yet not sure of where we could wire in a kill switch (grounding switch) without it possibly causing damage?
Any help greatly appreciated

Sounds like you got it. thumbsup
I would stay away from grounding kill switches. Don't know about Tri Spark, but Pazon warns against them. About the only safe way to do it with Pazon is to ground one of the trigger wires, which you don't have with the Tri Spark for twins.
