    yes - i didn't want a dynamo (aka magneto) but i'd heard about these magnetic-triggered relays, to which the coils are connected (and normally a magneto on the other side). apparently they're quite...

    i'd heard about piston rings that are angled so that when it all goes "bang" the pressures push them harder against the side-wall. the tapered cylinders (no rings) had me pause for a second though. ...
