you see the two studs on the ignitor? touch the with your fingers and click it with the other hand. then attach two wires to the studs and make them about 1/2 to 1/4'' apart. attach the wires to two screws and put the scres in the chamber.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Each one will be a little different. I would suggest holding the wires maybe 1/4 apart and checking if it sparks. Experiment to find what works best.
Why can't you get BBQ ignitors? Do they not sell them? "Borrow" one off of a grill. Or do what I used to do and salvage them off old gas grills people were throwing away. And while you're at it, take the aluminum shell and recycle it. Not only good for the environment, but you also get paid decent for it. It was like $.50/lb last time I took in a load, and that's when fuel prices were lower. So it has probably gone up since then.

I'm weird, I know it, you don't need to tell me.
