"The engine should be idling at 400rpm."To adjust timing:- turn distributor cam in normal direction as far as it will go,with distributor adjustment slack, then hold onto cam in this position, now turn the distributor in opposite direction until the points JUST start to open, and lock it up. Fit number one HT lead in the contact over the top of position of the Rotor arm when you have set timing" The ignition should be set with number one piston on compression at TDC, the flywheel set to 31 deg to the scribe line in the inspection hole, and the points should be just opening, when the distributor shaft is in this position. This is the correct timing procedure as in the manual, it may just help"....John
