    You should do one with diesel engines because there is no spark plug, it lights with compression

    If you have connections at Oak Ridge you can stick an engine in a beam of neutrons and see it working without needing a piece of acrylic. You can see the fuel because it absorbs more neutrons. Sort of like X-ray but with neutrons instead.

    Destin those are "Trembler Coils" (like Ford Model T used) the awesome thing about them is the spark duration that they are capable of throwing... On a model T they throw a spark for about 30-40 degrees of crankshaft duration.
