in restoring our 1910 fan tail launch in an effort to make the rear fain tail seat more open i want to move the magneto and switch from a board mounted immediately behind the motor to under the rear seat. someone told me that i should worry electrically as far as magneto voltage output. is this true , i would be lengthening the wires from about 10 inches to almost 30 inches. are these old systems that weak that that much additional cable length would be a factor?? the engine is a 1910 wright
thanx in advance for any response . many have sent me advise and plans for other things on this boat and i ahve never been able to send a thank you email back to any of you for some reason my comp. doesnt know or should i say i dont know how .always send email thanking and they always come back from the board unable to deliver so many thanks to all including the gentleman that sent me instructions on building my own cylindrical copper gas tank tom lange, lange boats boulder , co.

I don't think this distance will be noticable on the primary, secondary wire should be steel core or copper, don't use modern resistance wire.
