    Default Ignition System on a Crescent 500 CS

    Could use some help with my Crescent that I am restoring. The ignition system on this one is a later design unfortunately it was in pieces when I got the outboard with all the wires broken to the pickup.

    So my questions are:

    Whats the brand of this ignition?

    Does anyone know how it should be wired or more detailed photo of a Crescent with this ignition system.

    Thanks
    James

    Thank you for the response Dean, I have been in contact with Dick and he has been help in some respect to the restoration. But I still need more insight. So if someone recognizes or is familiar with this type of ignition. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    not familiar with it but
    do you have a peak voltmeter, if so I would put the flywheel on a then find out what voltage comes from those wires when cranking.
    Do those covers come off the coils
    Is it powered 12v or mag cd?
