Electronic Ignition Contoller for Hydrogen ICE Car.
LOOKING FOR
I would like to find a variable timing unit for spark advance for using Hydrogen as a fuel. It likes 0 degrees top dead center timing, and gas at 17 before top dead center. So I wand to switch between them. A 7% addition of Hydrogen to the combustion event characterizes it as a Hydrogen combustion event. Hydrogen is a good fuel as it actually cleans the air. In other words, the Exhaust is Cleaner Than the Intake Air.
Can I pick one up at Walmart?

Re: Electronic Ignition Contoller for Hydrogen Powered ICE Car

What engine is this going on and how is it currently timed? (Breaker points or electronic.)

Good luck finding one at Wally World ;o)

Re: Electronic Ignition Contoller for Hydrogen Powered ICE Car

would not any mod computer be able to do what you describe? (assuming you already have an engine with variable electronic ignition)

you will also need to find a way to prevent the steel brittlisation that hydrogen causes (or accept reduced service life of any steel component that comes in contact with the hydrogen)

in what way does hydrogen "clean" the air?

Re: Electronic Ignition Contoller for Hydrogen Powered ICE Car

I have heard that nickle plating can solve the steel problem. Also the hydrogen doesn't clean the air it causes the fuel to combust more completely.. A friend of mine had his lawnmower running on a mixture of alcohol and water that was heated to a vapor by the exhaust gas and browns gas which is a hydrogen/oxygen mix made through electrolysis.(you had to warm it up on regular gas then switch over to the mixture) It had no power you couldn't mow with it but it ran pretty good. There are a lot of exaggerated claims about this technology but it seems worth continuing to look into.

They say air comes out cleaner that it went in because many "pollutants" that come in with the air are burnt in the combustion process.

For timing at TDC and 17° BTDC, glue a couple of small magnets to the flywheel, one for each position, and sense them with a couple of Hall sensors. Connect whichever one you want to use to the trigger input of your ignition system with a SPDT switch.
