Out of curiosity I wanted to know how accurate -- or not-- the ignition timing scale inside the primary cover is.I mounted a timing degree wheel on the camshaft -- the wheel is graduated for use on the camshaft,I rocked the engine back and forth to establish accurate T.D.C.,turned the crankshaft back to indicate 28 B.T.D.C. on the degree wheel,looking at the scale inside the primary the line on the rotor lines up with 32 on the scale.My question now is,when strobe timing do I set the timing mark at 28 deg. or 32 deg. on the scale?,I may have confused myself more by trying to be accurate!. Thanks. James.
