This is a great post and full of informative learning for us neophytes..How would I set the timing if my plate is already at full retard and has no more way to give (clockwise)? I understand in these cases the plate must be taken off and the distributor shaft be rotated by hand to give the plate a central point in order to allow for retard and advance movement once again. My questions are;1) How do you move the distributor shaft?2) In what direction will you need to move the shaft in order to allow the plate to be put back on with enough space to move back and forth (Clock Wise and Anti Clock Wise)?3) Once timing is set and the plate is tightened up where shoudl the reference point be marked? On the plate? Or behind the plate?Thanks once again.
Scottie: + 1 on the tuningCoolgoose: Is this the Zen of Enfield Maintenance that I always heard about or is it the Old Monk kicking in (small taps on the condensor )...
he took off the cover and moved some gears around, moved the points plate where it should be and bam!
Here's a picture of the happy little fella.
