setting timing

move each plug wire to the next socket on the dizzy going in a counter clockwise rotation. this will advance the timing. you may have to turn dizzy in a clock wise direction to retard timing a bit to get motor to start. then use light again.

The Distributor can be installed in any position needed. Just make sure the Plug wires & Rotor are aligned correctly. Use a long Screwdriver to align the Oil Pump driveshaft.

Distributor install >>
