Timing - chapter two.........

Postby Ken (48 Cub) » Wed Aug 18, 2004 7:34 am

Thanks to all & HL's timing procedures I now have a slight handle on how to do it. Last night I discovered that I am one tooth (I thing) out of time. I will fix that tonight. It would have been so much easier without the radiator installed but oh well :cry:

With cylinder #1 at TDC, timing pointer on the notch. I could turn the magneto out away from the engine to about the one o'clock position. By doing this everything seemed to be in time. The clack (spark) was right at TDC and the rotor was pointing at the #1 post in the cap. :arrow:

I still had no spark at the plugs :x What am I missing?

Bad wires, bad cap, or bad rotor.

Ken, take a good look at the inside of the cap and also the rotor. The center contact of the cap must make good contact with the rotor and the rotor tip and all of the tower contacts must be clean. If you have not already done so, you will probably want to invest in a cap and rotor. Also plug wires need to be solid core or metallic wires not composite wires.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
