I was hoping that someone might be able to help me please with my timing as i can't seem to find anything on here or the internet. I have set idle at 5 degrees BTDC as per the Haynes manual but, i am struggling with the advance. I don't seem to be able to set it with the same window in the bell housing that i used to set idle and i do not seem to have any marks on the pully or marking teeth anywhere. I am looking for around 28-30 degrees. I do love the expectation on the user to hold a mirror, a strobe while holding and turning the dizzy and potentially having to rev the carb. LOL
Can someone possibly shed light on this as i am keen to get the best out of the engine? Carbs are fully rebuilt, i am running am electric ignition set up and all other clearances have been checked and set.
Thank you in advance.
