I am resurrecting a 1971 BGT that has been sitting (garaged, fortunately) for the last five or six years. As the former owner of a 73 B roadster, I'm pretty familiar with the car's workings, but am a

It varies with year, spec and dizzie serial number, but a static of 7 or 8 BTDC should get you started. Again the proper figures would be useful for strobe timing, you can get these from the website

might be fuel to the I agree, but I do have reason to suspect (a) the timing might be off and (b) it's been messed with since it was parked. Already plan on checking all the stuff you mentioned, but

OK, I know I'm hogging the list today, and I apologize for that. But I'm really excited about tracking this problem down. I think it's timing/distributor related. B distributors rotate counter-clockw

Well, in that case you should start from first principles. Turn the crank to line up the pulley mark with the TDC indicator. Make sure cylinder #1 is on the compression stroke (I'm sure you can figur

If disassembled the distributor can be reassembled 180 degrees out, but this only affects where the No.1 plug lead sits. If it runs, and all cylinders are firing, then No.1 and No. 4 must be firing w

Possibly the advance isn't functioning. Most likely the vacuum advance, I would think. Check the hose first, and then the diaphragm would be your next suspect. If you disconnect the line at the carb

I've never heard this one before, which leads me to ask: Just what are Midget owners with stock 1275s setting their stroboscopic timing to? My bently book says 13 degrees BTDC at 1000 rpm with the va

Karim, How could you NOT get it right using static timing? Please explain what seems to be going wrong. IMHO, static timing is dead simple and foolproof. Put the timing marks at 10 degrees BTDC, hook

You could just set it by ear. Start at your current setting. I think your distributor has a little dial which allows you to advance/retard the timing without resetting the ignition points. Be sure i

Don't worry about the begining, or ending of the segment. Align the Rotor in the approximate position, that is pointing directly at the #1 plug wire, put the car in high (4th gear) and push it backw
