Greetings:

I have an HIO-360-B1A installed on an RV6 with dual Electroair igns. This is a recent "upgrade" from a '90s Electroair version that worked beautifully... well, until it didn't. Anyway, the new version's magnetic timing sensors are apparently more sensitive to some ill-defined variation that Electroair tells me is causing the controller to "reset" -- meaning the ignition shuts off for some fraction of a second. Not noticeable above 900 RPM or so... other than I know it's there. Below 900 RPM there is a noticeable drop and much below that with just the single ignition selected the engine will quit completely. This is only on one side -- the other works as advertised. My local A&P has looked over the mag drive gears and finds absolutely nothing wrong. So Electroair is telling me nothing's wrong with the ignition and my A&P is telling me nothing's wrong with engine... but I still have a problem.

Anybody out there with a similiar experience? Or experience with the "modern" version of Electroair?

Thanks, Dennis
