Single Magneto Replacement – Mag Timing Housing (MTH)
Single Engine Aircraft
Continental 360, 470, 520 & 550 Series Engines
The EIS-61000 Electronic Ignition Kit is a fully STC’d kit for Continental 360, 470, 520, & 550 series engines, installed on single engine aircraft. Replacing one magneto with the EIS-61000 will typically improve fuel economy on average by 10-15% (operators have reported consistent fuel savings of 1.5-2.0 gph or greater). Additionally, there will be an improvement in horsepower, smoother engine operation, easier hot starts and improved high altitude performance. The EIS-61000 adjusts spark timing automatically by way of our MAP Sensor – timing is adjusted with altitude. Most parts on the EIS-61000 are not life limited (reference the I.C.A. for recommended maintenance) – this combined with reduced spark plug fouling means lower maintenance costs. This kit can be used on either 12V or 24V systems.
This kit uses a Mag Timing Housing (MTH) for firing the ignition system. The MTH unit directly replaces one of the magnetos on the accessory pad.
Kit includes: all the required parts to replace one magneto. (Please refer to the eligibility schedule to verify the system can be installed on your engine – Note: aircraft and engines are being added regularly).
