Isn't that the well-known "thing-a-ma-jig" that you use to install the whatchamacallit on your 24 stud "fathead" Ford (the one with the Mercury crank for extra inches)?

No you're probably confusing it with the "what-zit" used to adjust the "frammus" on the old Dodge "Fireball 200". You only did that when you were fine tuning the engine for "skim".

Nah! You're just baffled by all the technical jargon! Come on John! What is that tool and what's it used for?

Hint: It helps to figure the proper degree setting.

Ok one last hint The part that this tool was used with was done away when the engine computer came on the scene. As a matter of fact the unit that used the part that this tool was created for isn't used either!

What is it?

Come on guys! Where's that old hot rodder??

Are you Guys gonna sit there and tell me that you don't check the breaker plate spring tension in your distributer on a regular basis? You must have used this spring tension gauge when you were setting up the advance curve on your distributer! I check mine weekly!! ( I have no life )
What do you have in your tool boxes? A claw hammer, a set of water pumps and a broken screwdriver? Gheesh!

BB

Somebody go for it!!

I thot everybody gapped their points with a matchbook after filing them flat again to get another week or two out of a set! (That way, you didn't have to pay the 3.95 for a new set until NEXT paycheck!)
