Question about Garden
The curent victa 2-stroke engine(power torque) does not have adjustable timing. All you do is set the air gap between the coil & flywheel and its set. The simplicity of modern electronics has done with points etc
The previous Victa 2 stroke engines sometimes had points which is located under the flywheel - on these you need to first set the points gap. Now the actual timing is 1/8 inch BTDC. The coil & points are on an adjustable frame ( plate or whatever you call it) which is secured by 2 bolts ( 7/16" headsize size from memory) - loosen these 2 bolts and you should be able to rotate the assembly about 1/2 ".as it has elongated boltholes. Rotate the motor (clockwise looking down) so the piston is 1/8" BTDC if its correctly timed the points should just be opening. Move the coil/points assembly ( & tigten the 2 bolts each time) till you get it right, In practice the timing does not need to checked - if it ran OK before then if you need to disassemble ,mark the coil/points plate & engine body so you dont change the timing
