I hope this message finds you well, I’m having a little issue getting the car started consistently. The car is a 74 saloon, it had the engine replaced in the late seventies going from the service history I have.
I have an accuspark electronic ignition with a strong spark. The carb has a slightly rich mixture (The HIF38 was not on the car originally).
I suspect the timing may be out, and I went to check it, however, I don’t appear to have a saw tooth timing mark near the bottom pulley/harmonic balancer.
The book of lies says that there are timing marks on the flywheel that can be seen using a mirror through the access hole in the clutch cover, however, I can’t for the life of me see them.
I had read a comment some time ago that you can set the timing using the nut that holds the clutch plate in.
Would anyone be able to give me some pointers or a little bit more information about that?
Thanks, I really appreciate it!
