I understand that the CB points assembly if not put together can 'short'? Where does the tiny washer on the CB points go? Also how do all those plastic spacers on the Condenser assembly get put together and in what sequence?Any help is most gratefully received and most appreciated.
Ace, one question, how is the points cam indexed to the valve cams? Is it possible the points cam moved while the valve cams were being adjusted?
If you removed both the idler cams, is it possible the distributor gear rotated while they were out and put the ignition timing way off?Edit: There is no way to tell if the distributor gear is indexed like you can with the marks on the pinion and valve cam gears. You have to get the engine to TDC and set the timing manually, putting the gear where it needs to be for the points to break at generally the right time, then dial it in at the breaker plate for fine tuning.
I'll make a mental note, if I ever take off the timing cover, I will make sure to mark each of the idler gears so as to get them back together in the proper location.
AgentX,I don't want to hijack the thread, but how do you make certain the distro gear does not rotate relative to the cam gear while apart?Amritc, I agree with Ace, something is hanging up, or the adjuster on top of the carb is too tight.
