Once upon a time about 1970, someone had a scheme for electric Jetex ignition using a nichrome wire threaded into contact with the fuel. I don't remember the details, but believe that I did it at least once or twice.

Yes the electric start was used on Jetex engines, mainly the 150 PAAloader model. Not aware of it being used on a 50.
