Re: FYI - before tuning your PHBG. . .

good tip for all the newbie tuners out der.

Re: FYI - before tuning your PHBG. . .

But how do you know when your timing is optimal? Trial and error? Puchs with the standard stator plate will run at _almost_ any setting you put them at. I mean, short of backfiring because you're WAY off, do you just adjust until you find a setting at which it runs best, and then plug chop and carb tune from there?

Re: FYI - before tuning your PHBG. . .

how to find out if its optimal? set it to factory specs, or slightly advanced/retarded if you prefer. timing isnt really guesswork.

Re: FYI - before tuning your PHBG. . .

You could use an ohmeter and a device to measure BTDC so that you can see if the points are opening at like 1.5MM BTDC.

Here's one device you can make...

"Timing Tool": https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/discuss/read.php?f=7&i=75577&t=75554

And another thread on setting timing, showing a way to measure TDC. With an ohmeter yiou just need to see the current change, which is when the points open - and see if that time is at the proper BTDC.

"Moby BTDC measuring stick": https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/discuss/read.php?f=6&i=105459&t=105447

You can see that Moby's are more sensitive to timing than Puchs!

Re: FYI - before tuning your PHBG. . .

Re: FYI - before tuning your PHBG. . .
