Re: setting timing without timing light
Wow, another moldy thread rears up
I don't understand why people are so concerned about timing unless they have removed or turned the dizzy.
Once you set timing, the only thing that will change it is the timing chain stretching. PERIOD.
So... when you do a tune up, you DO NOT need to check the timing.
After 50K miles, when the timing chain stretches... and I guarantee you it WILL...
you may want to advance the timing SLIGHTLY to compensate for the chain slack.
So, all of you master mechanics out there....
Confucius say: LEAVE timing alone!!
