Re: Ignition timing question

Instead of using the timing pin use a short phillip's head screwdriver to find the dimple.

Re: Purpose of dual points?

Lots of good information from you all!

Okay this is starting to make more sense to me. I was trying to figure out why the points weren't opening and closing the same. This is helping.

Purpose of dual points?

Re: st"A"rt in 46 seconds

Honestly guys I'm not seeing the many mistakes you are saying that were made.

Re: Oil Pump and Valve Chamber Question

Rock the engine back and forth a bit forth a bit. Might just have a bit of a bind against the cam shaft. Put something soft under the oil pump in case it drops out while you are doing this.
