Default Re: Spark Question

Yep, what the fellas said.
1. Remove all sparklers
2. Try to insert pin while turning engine over. As the rotor approaches #1 in the cap [CCW] go slowly and the round end of the pin will slip slightly into the dimple is the gear. Thats TDC.
3. Now you're ready to set the dist. cam position. [ points already to .022" new, .020" used]
4. Any extra rotation CCW to open the points will create the spark you're looking for. I like a continuity meter for that. But with experience the ole eyeball works fine.
