200 cid 6 cylinder: dwell 35 to 38 degrees, point gap .024 - .026, initial timing: 6 btdc for manual, 12 btdc for automatic. You'll need a semi-decent dwell/tach - something in the 25 to 30 buck range should do nicely. Good luck.

SOURCE: timing advance and dwell specs ford probe

timing and dwell angle is non adjustable in these later model vehicles. the dwell is simply a reading that might be useful on a scope, while the timing advance is controlled by the systems ecu(computer) by taking readings off the knock sensor(or pre detonation sensor). this is a mazda engine. is there a problem or are you simply trying to keep up on the maintenance?

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--

The dwell angles for a 1991 Ford Econovan LWBS 2000cc petrol motor running on 96 RON Petrol Engine in good condition?


this engine should have an electronic ignition in which case there is no dwell angle
dwell angle was the degrees between the points opening and closing to give maximum saturation for the coil field
as it should be ab EFI engine then ECM makes the adjustment necessary for the correct setting for the fuel in use
as it is a low compression engine , the fuel octane rating that is best suited for it is 91
it will run well on 96 but the advantage gained is outweighed by the cost

What is the dwell on a 1956 235 6 cylinder


the dwell angle and the point gap are closely related and seldom alter unless the point cam is worn or the point rubbing block is worn To go back to 1956 I will have to open some old manuals to get the dwell so if you make a comment I will see what I can get for you. As you can appreciate the dwell angle is the degrees turned that allows maximum saturation of the coil to produce the hottest spark and that is why I mentioned that the point gap is critical to get the correct dwell.

1969 jeep with inline 4 cylinder changed points started nice 2 days later turns over im getting spark n fuel but not starting


Did you check the dwell angle after you installed the points? You need to remember that dwell (point gap) effects timing, but timing doesn't effect dwell. You should also replace your condenser and make sure to clean (wire brush) where it mounts to the dist.

Adjusting a 1989 Hyundai caruretor


Not hardly, A dwell meter measures the saturation period of the ignition coil. It began in the days of distributers and the dwell was expressed as an angle. This was in fact the rotational angle of the distributer cam when the points were closed.
Carburettors for the most part are not adjustable within the meaning of the word, but you can clean and replace gaskets etc. Dwell meters usually double as a rev counters and maybe you mean adjusting the carburetter using rpm as a guide. The answer is still no.
