    this is really old stuff.

    Back in those days, you disconnected the vacuum advance hose from the distributor (If equipped). Then adjust timing to spec with timing light.

    A good rule of thumb is about 10 degrees before top dead center, BTDC. Timing marks are usually on the crank pulley, but don't know on a VW.

Timming setting for a 1968 plymouth fury 111 with 318 engine


Factory setting was 2 degrees advanced, but most ran far better at 4-6 degrees. Limit on timing is how far you can go without hearing any detonation when you "get on it" under a load. When you reach that point, back off a few degrees. Advancing the timing lights the fuel in the cylinders early. At speed, the time it has to fully burn is very short. The sooner you light it, the better the chance that all fuel is converted into usable energy instead of going out the exhaust. The limiting factor in this is fuel quality as most available fuels are nowhere near the quality they were when your engine was produced.

this could be the engine speed sensor it sees your RPM's but it could obviously be seeing them wrong. Look how to get "error codes" on your car. on my vw it was basic as long as you follow the instructions there is a set of four numbers or flashes of your check engine light mine was 2-1-1-1

Hi. I have a 2005 VW Passat B5.5, 2.0 TDI DPF, 1968 cmc 100 kw, engine code BGW. I just bought the car, and i really need to know what engine oil to use. I bought 5 liters of Castrol EDGE 5w30 that meets...


the oil you got is fine,as the car uses more oil as it gets older the lower number should get higher (i.e. 5/30-10/40-20/50)that way you control the amount of oilburn.roughly a pint every 1000miles is about right.
