I found this thread with google search "puch timing"
..amazed at how many people manage to spell 'push' wrong..
Anyway.. three entries below the Moped Army on googles first page (you guys ranked #1) is the following..
It takes you to 23 pages of a moped propellerhead's wet dream
regarding timing and electronics - it's even got excellent illustrations, or I should say thank god it has illustrations because it's all in SWEDISH! Babelfish? Sorry, it's in HTML. (anyone know how to get around this?)
Anyway.. again.. if you scan down the illustrations, there are photos of what looks remarkably like a puch flywheel and with
the timing marks indicated. I was thinking that I might blow up
the photo and get a good estimate of spread between the setting mark and TDC when I scanned the text and was able to determine that that distance is 17-18mm. Regardless of your Puch model, this has to be a good ballpark reference.
I'm headed out to the garage to find TDC, dremel reference marks in the flywheel and case, dremel a setting 17mm CC of that, get out dad's old timing light, (when's the last time I needed that?), and give it all a whirl.
thanks for the great forum here guys.
