I have a 1993 ford Econovan maxi . I have ignition point . What is the gap on the ignition point . Thanks


point gap is .40 to .50 mm ( point 4 to point 5 mm) or .015 to .20"
most point distributors are at the .02 " mark but check and adjust as points to wide will misfire under load or lack power if too close
point gap variations can change ignition timing

What is the dwell angle on a 3f engine if point gap is 18 thou


dwell angle is the no of degrees rotation between points closed and points open and for example on a 4 cylinder engine ( 4 lobes =90 degrees the dwell would be around 45 degrees available
there is an adverse relationship between point gap and dwell angle
the closer the points the bigger the dwell and conversely the bigger the gap the smaller the dwell angle
in a distributor the point gap of 18 would have a large dwell angle and that affects ignition timing
in your workshop manual there will be a dwell angle specification and if you set the points at .020 " that will put you close to the dwell angle specification
from there you adjust the gap to obtain the dwell setting
after yo have the dwell set , adjust the ignition timing
there is plenty of information on dwell angle, /point gap if you type in ---dwell angle to point gap relationship--

Timing 6 degrees before TDC vacuum hose disconnected from vacuum advance. Idle @ 600rpm auto trans. and 700rpm

What is the point gap setting for a 1969 AMC V8?


generally speaking we look for 30 degrees dwell,but setting the point gap at 18 thousands of an inch work well,then adjust the timing. dwell changes timing but timing does not change dwell,so adjust the points first then set the timing

I do my own auto care and have had conflicting information on these specs, recently purchased a olds 98 with a 455engine and single point distributor, point gap was at 19 the timing was at 10 and the plug...


I would start by doing a compression test. If you have a low cylinder than no adjustments will improve it. Also the plug gap and the timing will not cause misfire. The point gap would make a difference, but it sounds like you have other issues, so start with a compression test. Hope this helps. Good luck :O)

Point gap setting and timing


sorry my memory is fading. i would gap at 35 and for the timing i used to use a glass of water (sometimes it wasn;t water) put it on the air filter and turn the distributer till it shook the least. of course i had no money ,those days to buy a timing light or manuals....or you might contact/join a old ford club. they are tops for such info...my first car was a ford custom 65......

Need timing specs and point gaps please


Well I can't really help with the timing specs but the points gap should be .019 (in.), but I always learned to use a match box to gap them  and that works great too. Hope this helps.
