New Timing

RE: New Timing
Ok, then you have the later version as I mentioned with the "flats" on the dist clamp so it's only going to fit one way and there's no adjustment other than to put the rotor at the mark on the way in and the computer does the rest. If you are off a tooth that will set a code. If you are on the money then the light will stay off!

It's not uncommon to see 10 degrees or more advance with a scan tool at idle. Most of my fleet shows 12 - 17 degrees when warmed up but since they are vans it's been a LONG time since I have used a timing light. It's almost impossible to see the mark on them so I use the scan tool.

BTW, thanks for the follow up. I'd be curious to hear how it runs when you finally get it on the road.

HEAH Rupe -

Its been on the road about 5 weeks now ! Off and On.
Zero error codes thus far. Well a TPS and O2 sensor code popup occansionally.
Only 60 miles on Engine, thus far.
Still need to complete a few items for complete State Inspection.
I know that you have been w/ me for most of this build . . . .

It is running very good and rather on the cool temperature side.
I am running one Electric Fan. I believe its a 14.5 amperage /?. Mechanical Fan is in my spare part storage . . .

I'll try to post a picture soon -when I figure how to post/paste one.
Happy Sunday.
Thanks Alot Rupe as before !

RE: New Timing
There's a couple of ways to post pictures here...

One way is to set up an account with say "PhotoBucket" which is an outside place to keep your digital art then you post a link to the album or single shot here. Since the link takes you outside this page there's no limits. You can post a half dozen links.

The other way is to edit your shots to something under 400Kb, which is about the size limit here, then post them directly to your message via the reply button on the botton of this post. (not the quick reply box on the bottom of this page) On that page near the bottom you will see a place to stick your attachments. Using the "browse attachments" button you can open your index of saved shots on your own PC and select one. (this is for a windows based PC) The software here will only accept one shot per post.

If you don't have a photo edit program here's a little trick...
Open a photo on your own computer (in your pictures folder?) and right click on it. That will open a menu. Choose properties and look at the file size. (generally it will be 1 -2 meg form a phone cam) If it's too big then go back to the pic, right click, choose open in Internet Explorer or similar. When that shot opens right click on it again then choose "mail to" and it will ask "what size" so choose medium and mail it to yourself. At that point you can save the new shot from your email and it will only be a few hundred Kb but exactly the same pic.
