Timing Light Recommendation

Anyone have a good recommendation for a good engine timing light?

What are some things to look for or should be requirements in a light? Such as Advance dial, degrees, etc....

Thanks in Advance

You already posted this in the Engine forum. It is best not to make duplicate posts. But anyhow...I answered your question over there.

sure I got one and would suggest it as a buy. It is self powered and uses batteries for its power. The big advantage of this light is two fold, first you can use it on the side of the road and second one (1) wire to hook up and that one is for the plug. My coupe has the battery located in the rear of the hotrod so the battery thing is real handy . sure I could use the cable on the starter but that is messy dragging the light and wires. It cost around 50 beans ............ advance dial .. mmmmm not sure what that is good for. Get the base timing right and check the full in @ 2 grand (depending on the curve) and you are golden. And if all else fails the thing can be used for a regular flashlight ...... what a DEAL, two tools for the price of one .................. Can it get any better then that ....... waiting.
