View Full Version : timing?

07-22-2012, 3:07 PM
i wired the capacitor in, and i am now getting a much hotter and more consistent spark, so hopefully that is that.
here is the new question:
its kickin back like it thinks it is a 1969 xlch on magnetos!
so i rotated the timing PLATE as far forward (retarded) as i could, yet it still kicks me back.
is it a common thing to have to go to the secondary set of pillar bolt holes in the timing chest?
possibly the wrong points plate/auto advance unit?

i'll be in the garage.......

38 degrees BTDC ! If youve got good spark it should fire, make sure your cam timing is correct (check your book) Ive got higher compression and still I can start it first kick.
