Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to set up the ignition timing. Are there any marks to use a strobe on. Cheers John

Hi John,
There is a 6mm hole on the r/h side of the bell housing where you can insert a 6mm rod turn the engine so the rod locates
the hole in the flywheel. Then engine is then locked to the correct degrees before tdc. If you mark the flywheel with a dab of
white paint you can use the white paint mark on the strobe. Remember to remove the 6mm rod.
Make sure your points are set up correctly then you can start the engine and turn the distributor so the paint marks line up.
Hope that makes sense. I'll try and dig out some pictures and put them in the technical section.
