I've done this so many times but today it's been f$$$$%#$%$%#$% difficult. As far as I can tell, you MUST set the points with the flywheel on, but when you turn the flywheel to where the cam has the points fully open, it's impossible to get anything through the fucking window!!!!
Honestly the only thing making me insane right now is the San Francisco wind, which is relentless from 3-10pm. I need a fucking garage.
I've set the timing with a micrometer and feeler gauge a couple times now from scratch, I know how to do it. But today I am just FAILING.
Does anyone out there have a special trick I may be missing? I had spark before, I was just running down some tuning issues and decided it was time to re-set my timing. (edited)
