Default Re: bridge rectifier

There have been previous posts about using a bridge rectifier and zener diodes. If I remember correctly, the concensus is that the rectifier might draw too much power and kill your engine since the magneto puts out so little current.

But don't rely on my memory, I'm a gettin' old...
