I checked the ignitions systems, they are all grounded, so no point in running an earth wire.

How is the -(ve) side of the plug connected to the ignition system Ov?

There are no shortcuts on the long, hard road to success. But if your dad's rich there could a limo service...

The braided earth wire is soldered onto a piece of brass tube going into the 'box' .

And how is it connected at the other end?

Soldered onto the metal plug cap, two flights this afternoon with the Rexel ignition system plugged into a separate 6v battery and the RPM counter disconnected, All went well with the exception of the exhaust screws coming loose,
so a couple of longer bolts to be screwed in and their heads wired up,,  :''

Unbelievable, finding 5mm x 35mm bolts, no one has them so out came the oxy acetylene gear a couple of nuts and I made them myself, a couple of tubular spacers were also brazed inside the exhaust and a new joint made all assembled and a piece of 1.5mm piano wire to keep it all in place.

No flying as our new runway is under way,,
