Hello
l have a early 1900 Waterman engine that i would like to get running, it has most of the ingredients, i just need a little help with the timer part.

l have a few hit and miss engines and many more modern stuff so Iím fairly familiar with a spanner..........., but this is a complete mystery to me, i need complete instruction on how it should be set up and work, Iím always concerned with breaking something. Cheers

The timer is just a rotary switch, connect one wire from battery to buzz coil, wire out of buzz coil to the terminal on the timer. Connect a wire from the engine back to the other battery terminal. When the contact in the timer is closed the coil will fire.

Hello JP
Thanks, it just dawned on me looking at a Nelson engine, its a rotary version of the same ign....................what threw me is the timer head part is seized so the whole unit wanted to rotate. lt came off easily with the removal of the set screw in the red band, lve given it a hose down with liquid wrench and will have a go at it in the AM. Cheers
