Ignition Timing Delay


Recommended Posts

Now it's time to adjust my timing delay, I wanted to know if I should leave my locked ignition timing to the 10 deg, or should I lock it at something higher, say 30? I don't think the engine would like 10 deg at higher revs.

When revving up the engine to find any timing drift, what's a good way going about it? Should I slowly bring the rpm up and pause at say every 1k? Or be a little quicker and maintain a smooth rev increase?

For the “lock timing to” value pick the highest mark you have on the pulley, 10 deg is fine for a free rev.

for the delay you only need to check two points.  I normally do just above idle where it’s nice and stable then 5000rpm or so.
