OHV Models

If contact points remain closed "light on" in the fully advanced position, timing is late - point contacts set too close together.

If contact points begin to open "light off" before circuit breaker is in fully advanced position, timing is early - point contacts set too far apart.

To correct rear cylinder timing, the breaker points must be readjusted so contact points just begin to open (timing light just flickers or goes off) when circuit breaker is fully advanced.

NOTE: This will result in a different point contact opening than original setting of .022 in.

Check the rear cylinder timing with timer cover installed, using same procedure as given in preceding paragraph heading, "Checking Timing," but using rear cylinder breaker points and rear cylinder flywheel timing mark.

NOTE: If engine is in chassis, test lamp can be connected to circuit breaker wire and engine (ground). With ignition turned on, lamp will light with points open and go off with points closed, exactly opposite from battery hookup previously described.
