If this happens, you can still usually tell which motor it is by looking at the 25 cent size soft plug in the upper rear RH side of the block. The model and year are stamped in this soft plug also but probably only up to in a code we can relate to. It is interesting to also note that the 15 hp uses the same block as the 9. I have heard from more than one person that their plug had numbers that do not match any of the codes, so this kind of backs up the idea of a change after the date, as the factory changed things as time went on. However another reader said his plug codes were good at If you need to check on parts and do not have a actual parts list booklet, one of your best sources is http: Or this one http: The word was that the imported Japanese engines of the same rating were outperforming the US engines, as they were rated differently.

Hazards[ edit ] Ceilometers that use visible light can sometimes be fatal to birds, as the animals become disoriented by the light beams and suffer exhaustion and collisions with other birds and structures. Using optical instruments such as binoculars near ceilometers is not recommended, because lenses in instruments could concentrate the beam and damage one’s eyes.

Optical drum ceilometer[ edit ] An optical drum ceilometer uses triangulation to determine the height of a spot of light projected onto the base of the cloud.

Sep 10,  · You can use an inductive light. The easiest way to use an inductive timing light on the M without the adapter is to use an old spark plug wire, and strip away the woven metal insulation from a couple inches of the wire so the inductive light will pick up a signal.

Remove the primary lead from the terminal post at the side of the distributor. Disconnect the vacuum line if equipped. Remove the distributor cap retaining hooks or screws and remove the distributor cap. Note the position of the rotor in relation to the base. Scribe a mark on the base of the distributor and on the engine to facilitate reinstallation. Align the marks with the direction the metal tip of the rotor is pointing. Remove the bolt that hold the distributor to the engine.

Lift the distributor assembly from the engine. Line up the mark on the distributor and the one on the engine with the metal tip of the rotor. Make sure that the vacuum advance diaphragm is pointed in the same direction as it was pointed originally. This will be done automatically if the marks on the engine and the distributor are line up with the rotor. Install the distributor hold-down bolt and clamp.

How to Hook Up a Timing Light by MJ Knoblock Timing lights are a diagnostic tool used on cars without computer-controlled ignition to help the mechanic find the correct setting for ignition timing. Proper timing on a car improves fuel mileage, engine longevity and performance. The device resembles a gun with a flat front and three wires hanging from it.

These are connected to the battery and spark plug wire prior to use. Hook up a timing light properly to set accurate timing, avoid arcing of electricity and prevent engine damage.

Description: The timing light enables the synchronization of the ignition system with the piston movement. An inductive pick-up replaces the necessity to disconnect the spark plug wire to operate the timing light.

Ignition Timing Timing dynamically is fairly simple and is the best way to time your engine. Static timing is good for a baseline adjustment, but real accuracy requires a timing light. The first step to setting your timing is to adjust your valves. Valve adjusting is to be done on a stone cold engine and is a topic for another procedure, but John Muir explains well how to do it in his Idiot book.

If you have a ’78 or later Bus with hydraulic valve lifters, you can skip this step. Once that’s done, you need to adjust your points. NEVER set the timing before setting the point gap. Changing the point gap changes the timing. Once that’s done, you can proceed to set your idle speed. Do not adjust the timing until you’ve adjusted the idle speed to specifications usually between and rpm on the VW engine. Idle speed adjustment can only be done on a warm engine.

Timing light

If an engine has breaker points it will have timing marks. I usually remove the blower housing, find the timing marks and stick on a piece of reflective tape. An engine can be run for a short time with the blower housing removed. Some engines have a removable screen which exposes the flywheel.

The wiring hook up on something like an Auto Meter Pro-Comp 2 tach (with a two stage shift light) is a bit different. There are five wires coming out of the back of the tach (not counting the shift-lite connector).

Thanked 2 Times in 2 Posts This morning I believe I successfully set the timing on my inline six to 14btdc. I guess I was over thinking things a bit before with my fancy timing light, but its actually really simple to do. Anyway, figured I’d post the process for anyone else who’s curious. Let me know if I’ve gotten anything wrong.

First off, you need a few tools: Clean up the metal part of the crank pulley to find the little timing mark etching and mark it with white out or something so you can see it really well. Remember that the mark is small and you might have to do some searching to find the mark. When I couldn’t find it I cranked the motor to move the pulley around partially.

Next clean up the little strip of toothed metal with the timing marks etchings.

Wasted spark with multiple coils It can also support coil per plug in some installs. For wasted spark you require a minimum of single “missing tooth” crank wheel, only engines with an even number of cylinders being supported. You need at least for 4cyl, for 6cyl or for 8cyl. However, the wheel is probably the easiest to obtain. The MS ECU can drive up to 6 seperate spark outputs, meaning it can run up to a 12 cylinder in wasted spark mode. For a distributor based setup with a trigger wheel, simply follow all of the wheel decoder instructions but rather than setting SparkB, C, etc as outputs as in a wasted spark setup only set LED17 as SparkA output and ensure all other spark outs are NOT set:

Minor condensation and editing. Scroll down for Max Lambky’s Restoration Tips With rocker caps removed, also the big end quill and cylinder feed quil , and the long forward banjo bolt on the timing cover removed. Using a lever type oil can one begins by pumping a half dozen full strokes down each of all four pushrods tubes thus flooding the cam lobes and followers.

This later drains down into the sump to be returned more quickly by the pump. Then before replacing the rocker caps you shoot a stroke over the top of each rocker arm to oil the inner rocker contact tips and thrust pads , and the lower valve stem and guide. In all near a pint can be injected by these means described above. All to the good in a dry motor. Next one inserts the oil can spout through the forwards banjo bolt opening deeply enough to deliver oil into the filter element housing and pumps that at least half full , soaking the filter and cutting down on the time it takes before delivery of oil begins to the rods etc upon startup.

Replace that banjo bolt. Refill your oil can. Then you can fill the connecting rod big ends via the feed quill bore , even easier to simply do so via the small screw opening in the end of the quill, delivered through a clean shop rag, one layer across the opening to act as a seal. Here you can load up the timing cover passages via the top feed quill beneath the dome nut, replace.


Digital Verified Purchase I got this timing light Innova a almost 4 years ago. The first year it worked fine, though I only used it times on my car. I did use it once in on a friends car to make sure his timing was where it needed to be at 2, rpm, again worked as intended. I expected this unit to work but it now flashes intermittently. It does read out the correct RPM consistently, regardless I took their website advice this winter and bought a replacement wire harness Today we had nice weather here in Ohio and I finally got to test the replacement harness.

Mar 09,  · you need an inductive light theres 2 days to do it, first the #1 coilpack (front of the engine) the middle white wire i believe, seperate it a bit and clamp the inductuctor around it. second is there is a white wire loop on the back of the coilpack plug harness at the rear of the engine, your supposed to be able to clamp that and get the same result but ive never been able to get a signal from it.

Unsportsmanshiplike Conduct – There’s a cheater in every sport, and competition tractor pulling is no different. Honest pullers who ignore the cheater s are fools. And when there’s prize money involved, a fool and their money are soon parted. Anyway, to make competition pulling a fun and fair sport for the entire family, be protective of your equipment! While at the pulls, keep an eye on your killswitch plug! This is one of the easiest, dishonest and sneaky ways to disable and sabotage a competitor’s tractor.

All a cheater needs is an opportunity in an attempt to gain an advantage on the track. This is also the fastest way for a pulling association or club to gain a bad reputation and lose honest pullers. Bad news travels fast. This type of behavior doesn’t happen often, but you need to be prepared if or when it does happen. To be prepared for this unforeseeable extra killswitch plug with you.
