i do not know how to set the dwell,this is more important than the gap
I would like to check the timing on my '37 LaSalle. The manual gives some rather vague instructions including the use of a synco something or another which I gather must be like a timing light or the 30's equivilent anyway.I tried my 12 volt modern timing light but as suspected, nothing.Is there some other way to check the timing, or can one cobble up a homemade timing light that will work with the 6 volt system?Thanks,Craig
I followed the advise given, used the battery in my wifes car (shhh, don't tell her) to supply the juice. I had a little trouble picking up a signal on the #1 spark plug wire (I think it may be going bad) after pushing it this way and that I got the signal I needed only to realize I cannot read the timing marks on the balancer. I put some white paint on the correct mark and now we are good to go.Thanks for the help.Craig
