Lern me these points again......

So if the book says... .012 to .016....hobbit mind you.

What happens when they are at .012..

What happens when they are at .016.

Does the timing change, just what is going on here.

Re: Lern me these points again......

If you can get spark initiation at the correct place BTDC with 0.016 then go for that because the cam follower will slowly wear down so it will give you some elbow room. Larger the gap the less misfiring you will have, until you have too much gap then you will lose saturation and get a weedy yellowy spark.

Re: Lern me these points again......

OK.

So is the largest gap before it has a pissy spark a goal..?

What if I did .018, would that be good.

Re: Lern me these points again......

.018 is bigger then .016...

Re: Lern me these points again......

What's the biggest you ever got on a Moby??

Re: Lern me these points again......

.016 advances the timing, .012 retards timing (relative)

good if you have non-adjustable stator plates, vespa, hobbit, etc.

Re: Lern me these points again......

thank you lots...

Re: Lern me these points again......

Probably Fred /

Wayne says that at 17 thou points make the most power

But if you can't retard the stator enough to be in time then no .

Set gap first then time

Re: Lern me these points again......

Tri-ped Dave O.D.B. /

I set the time then gap for fine timing because I do it by eye

Re: Lern me these points again......

The man.

Re: Lern me these points again......

If you ever get it timed right put a dab of grease on the points cam so it stays timed
