I added a timing tape the other day so I could use a cheapo timing light instead of my digital. Same reading with both lights.

If I stabbed the dizzy incorrectly, couldn't I just rotate the cap until I found normal timing on the balancer?
I think the heads are too big & the carb is too big. JMO That's what was changed.
What intake ?
