    There's another way around that , too, and you can still have a shielded ignition system installed.

    With a shielded ignition, use REM-41E spark plugs in the bottom of all 4 cylinders. They are the standard length plugs. Use 2 REM-37BY plugs in the top of the aft cylinders. Those are shorter plugs. In the top of the two forward cylinders, use unshielded ceramic plugs but cover them with Air Associates shielding cups. The ignition leads enter these at a 45 degree angle and will need the special B nuts that come with the cups installed on their plug ends. All of this fits under the standard cowl without having to cut holes in the cowling.

    Is 71 Charlie the one done by Scootair? I am sorry now I did not just go get it with a handful of cash.

    The objective on this restoration was to keep the airplane in as close to original configuration as possible.
