First time posting, this might be the wrong thread. I just installed points on my 2001 sportster. I used a how to guide I found on here. http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?t=34911

My question is I set it up like the "how to said." I set the initial timing on the compression stoke on the rear cylinder with the 1 timing dot. It runs but the timing adjustment is all the way counter clockwise. The points gap is .018. I think the advance cam may need to be pulled out and rotated 180 degrees. Thanks for the help.
