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?
Well, the cap won't rotate without the distributor, moving the timing. Just moving the wires one tower should would do it.
When I die I want to go peacefully - in my sleep, not yelling and screaming like passengers in my car...
