When I adjusted the points on my peugeot, the manual suggested a different method from the point gap and the cigarette paper method.
It was very easy to do, and according to the manual it is the most accurate way.
You get 2 batteries and a small flashlight light bulb. Connect all three elements in series, and then connect the negative end of the last battery to a good ground (the manual reccomended a cooling fin on the cylinder). Then connect the ground on the light bulb to the brown wire coming from the rectifier.
You put the flywheel at the mark and open the points until the light dims.
My question is will this method work on other mopeds?
And if it will, how do I know which rectifier wire to use?
I will need to check the timing on my puch later this week, and I would prefer to use this method if possible.
