Re: How to : Timing tool

how about a link or picture of this timing tool?

For the price of the timing tool ,you could have bought a used timing light off CL.

A timing light is the only accurate way to time a bike.

The timing tool that you use in the spark plug hole needs continuity tester/light for something to tell you when the points are open and static timing what you’re going to be doing is not accurate, it does not show the points opening at say at 3000 RPM,

The best bet is to find top dead center make marks on your flywheel and Case and use a timing light so you can feel actual timing at speed.

Go to Harbor freight and buy two of their cheep timing lights

(return the one that doesn’t work) and your set !

I didn’t write this (someone used my words) but it may help you find top dead center and make marks for the timing light to see : http://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/Puch_timing

Just use it to make horse or bunny marks on the flywheel and engine housing.

Then set and check with timing light.

You can always text CW.

Re: How to : Timing tool

Yeah a timing tool is not the only part of the puzzle when you have no tdc marks, and points that can be adjusted as well. You can use the timing tool to find tdc and a google search of something like "finding top dead center" will get you that. Eventually you will need to visually compare your tdc mark with a timing light to see where it is actually firing.

On a setup like an HPI which has a defined firing point on the stator plate, you only have to use the tool to set your mm btdc and you will not actually need a light unless you want to verify after that it has worked.

Re: How to : Timing tool

Even better, buy one and test it on your car in the parking lot.

Re: How to : Timing tool

I Have a timing light I'm about to go give it a try

Like one of these?

Re: How to : Timing tool

for breaker points you would find the point you want it to fire then loosen the flywheel and turn it until the cam is juuuuuuust making the points open. then test with a timing light.

That are the stator plate depending on the moped you working on if it has points that is.

But you should always check it with a timing light afterwards.

If it's got points in the timing is jumping around you did something wrong.

OR

The points are junk.

Rust pits on the cam lobe.

Dried grease Rolling under the cam follower.

Crank moving due to bad bearings.

You have the shakes do to jonesing..

If it's a CDI that's fixed.

Timing goes crazy and intermittent at high RPM.

The pickup or output winding is breaking down.

If it's a CDI with a curved box.

Check timing at 4,000 rpm should be steady.

Revit to the Moon see how much it retards from the 4000 RPM test.

If the timing is advancing you have a 4-stroke CDI box.

If you're still confused ask your mom if her and your dad are related. (edited)
