The internal guts seemed to be loose in that turning the allen wrench ccw as instructed only met with limited resistance then a "click." I wiggled the actuator rod a little and the internal guts seemed to take a seat.

From here I can adjust it as per the instructions. Sure hope this thing stays adjusted as it will be very difficult to reach once installed.

Made in the USA I think.
Accell products have been questioned for quality issues before, I doubt it is a native soil piece. Interested to know if the adjustments actually allow you to set the limit or the max amount of vacuum advance as well as the starting point/range as claimed. I guess you will need to put a light on the motor and check it to see, let us know.
