Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, I don't know what type of vehicle you need to set the timing for,
generally I will remove the first plug, turn the engine by hand till the piston can be felt at the uppermost position with a screwdriver (at the plug hole), this brings the engine to the first firing stroke, the rotor on the distributer should be at or near position 1 for the plug lead. this is known as TDC (top dead centre) for timing, if the rotor is not lining up to the plug lead loosen and adjust the distribtor (in some cases you have to remove the distributor and reinsert till you find the correct seating position of the rotor. when it aligns don't forget to tighten distributor. Hope this helps.
