Timing issues and misconceptions
« on: April 18, 2021, 09:24:20 AM »

It is confusing when so many people and books are wrong.

Donít waste any more time.
Remove valve cover
Put lower crank pulley on zero
Touch rockers at number one and number four. When you find which rockers are loose on both I and E you found where distributor rotor is supposed to be pointing to.

Itís not a Chevy. When notches are up thatís number four ready to fire. The crank doesnít know it just revolves. The cam has the profile and thatís why itís pinned to the sprocket. So itís obvious if notches up that the firing hole would be on the low side of the lob profile.

For me personally, so much time was wasted on trying to time like other engines. Thumb over number one to feel it compress. Figured wrong over and over. FSM is correct. Now I wonít stab dizzy without knowing which rockers are loose first.
Stay outta my tree.
And the tree next to my tree and the trees next to that! Or any tree made out of wood for that matter!
