    How does one controll the EMF on a HT/China Girl engine? Silly thing disrupts any quasi-sophisticated circutry that gets near... including some headlights/tailights. I tried the extra rubber around the spark lead to no avail- tinfoil? Any advice please, this aspect is shutting down some seriouse experiments here-

    Electrical Interference

    Hey Sarge, Saw your post and did a quick search on the subject. It seems you're not the only one with this problem. The best answer I found was resister type plug and wire. One guy took an electronic device(a game boy I think he said,) close to the engine and killed it forever. The resister stuff is cheap enough to try and won't kill the wallet if it don't work. Let me know if you figure this out. If you do you'll be everyones hero, On this site anyway.

    resistor plug, lead and cap. any or all of :)

    and then find a small metal box for the cdi unit itself...a mini faraday cage :)
