    Here is a picture of a Zephyr throttle hook up.  I have 32 pictures of my light four but non of the throttle.   Maybe it will help.

    Got a story for you mister Malliett.   When I was a pup my buddies and me were woods bike riders.  More than once we were running hard on spring woods rides and someone in our group would water out.  First thing we did was find a high spot of ground and pull out the spark plug.   Roll the bike upside down and turn the engine over until most of the water was out.  Then we pulled the ignition cover off and usually somebody would have a can of CRC or WD40 and we sprayed the ignition wires, points and condenser and every other wire we could find that was around the coil.  Then we asked if any one had a dollar bill a dry one if possible.   Buddy’s know well that you will probable not get your dollar back but some one usually antes up.   We folded up the dollar so we could snap the points on it to clean and dry the ignition.   We never had a failure!   Sand in the carb slide was common, sticky throttle but that is another story!

    TBH I found this little tutorial on utube.  It makes the spark making process understandable.  I know from personal experience that the trigger coil starts the process.   When CDI started the only timing adjustment was at the trigger coil.   When the motor started it ran at full advance.  Nowadays most small engines run at full advance all the time.  Could one of these coils be adaptable to run on our old outboards?

    This spring my lawn mowing equipment has used two coils so far.   They either work or they don’t.  None of my pack of mowers are new and none have ignition points or condensers.  I am purchasing some spare coils.  It would be nice to bolt on a coil on and old outboard that will spark and run without points and condensers.

    Hugh everyone has an opinion so here is mine.   Those CD/AD motors have no ball bearings of any kind.   16:1  or maybe 20:1 with TCW3 oils should be used.  These oils are good for the motor and good for the water they are run in.  If you are afraid of alcohol fuels remember Seafoam and Stable both have alcohol in them.   10% alcohol won’t hurt but you want to drain all the fuel out of your motor at the end of the season.
