    At least some of Alan's CDI ignitions used electronics from Yamaha 2-stroke twins, but I'm not sure what he used for the Norton/Triumph/BSA boxes. He used at least two different looking black boxes for the two generations of points mounted mags. I have one of each, but there are no any identifying marks on either of them. Both look like they were potted by him, not factory items. The earlier one is a cylindrical lump of plastic, with wires for coil and mag. The later one is rectangular and mounted on a bracket that also holds the coil. Both have the same type of connecting wires coming out of the potted bit. I'm guessing the guts are the same in both, just a tidier mounting setup for the later design.
