What about my timing? I was at 15deg BTDC at idle RPMs. When I opened the throttle the reading started to go everywhere but I just blamed that on my cheap harbor freight timing light. Is this an issue?
Also, I mentioned it before but my gap might be larger than the intended .017” because I had to bend the feeler gauge to get behind the flywheel at TDC. The somebody said I shouldn’t even be setting my points gap at TDC. If not, where do I set it?? The video TravisTutorial put up had him & his roommate setting the gap at TDC. Is there another certain degree I should set my gap at? And could a too large gap be the cause of this overheating?
