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

Your 429 has solid lifters and they are adjustable. It's Tricky. Way to much to explain here. go on line and type in Adjust 429 solid lifter. There are several sites that have good instructions

What is the points setting for a 1967 Cadillac Coupe De Ville


The ignition points in GM Delco distributors are adjustable while the vehicle is running. Although I have not found any specific point gap stated for your 429 ci engine, the instructions say to turn the adjusting screw clockwise until the engine starts to misfire, then back out a half turn (footnote 5). The most accurate way to set the point gap is to use a dwell meter to set the dwell angle at 30. I recall mine was fairly inexpensive (about 35 years ago), but I don't know if they are even available these days.

Just after engine torque settings for a 2 litre cortina 1981 cylinder head and crank settings


wow a real engine built by proper craftsman in dagenham ,well the head bolts are around 70 lbs ,tappet settings 12 inlet and 15 exhaust unless its the Gt version then they were wider but clacked like hell so fit a standard cam ,2.0 engine is valve free so if belt snaps you do not damage the valves ,timing for unleaded fuel which these engines will run on is about 6? static .timing marks are easy to see ,These engine are stelite coated valves and seats so even 1972 engine one the first engines will run on unleaded fuel .engine oil use shell rotella diesel /petrol as this was used on all ford engines in the assembly plant .Another tip use the 98 octane fuel as they were designed to run on 4 star petrol which was 97 octane .points gap 25th and plug gaps 25 as well ,cannot seem to remember the firing order though ,old age comes to us all iam afraid but i think it was 1243 but it could have been 1342 ,i should know i fitted enough plug leads in my time .
