I have a qeustion. to get the ignition timing where you want, what plug do you have to short. I just read in an other topic.

Please help.
I have put my timing where i want without shorting a pin or so.

If you get a timing analyzer from Sears you don't have to do any of that. Just adjust the knob on the back of the gun until the strobe shows your timing marks on the crank pulley lining up with the mark on the oil pump. Then read the number that the knob on the gun is pointing to, that is your advance.
u can move your dist. as much as u want the timing wont change because the computer will comp. for it unless u jump those wires
