Fred, The points assembly on a Ciao is fixed, no slots, and the pivot 'hinge' for the points, fits in an indentation so that it can not be repositioned. The points open when the cam lobe strikes the heel. With no adjustment of the heel then how can you change the time that the heel is struck by the cam lobe. If I set them the way that you say, will they still not open when the heel gets hit. I'm having trouble understanding how this setting can be changed by setting the points gap. Also, the Ciao flywheel can't be measured unless you remove the engine,it's buried under a cover and the frame. Anyone out there got a flywheel on a bench to measure. bruce
