Or a replacement ignition for an EME120.

Just saying.

Of my 7 ZDZ engines, I have yet to require any parts.
I have encountered modellers at the field in need of parts. The same day they go home early.

These young-uns nowadays like to feel they have a need for the that so-called "smartphone" they have strapped to their hips!!

So they buy Ct to maximize the usage!!
