Base Ignition timing!!!!!!
I am rightly pissed at present.....
... I am putting the tweaks on the ghia after the new motor going in - adjusting the timing at the moment. As you all know, the dizzy is in the most F....D place on our cars it is absolutely f.....G disgraceful!!!!!!!
There, vented my spleen and all that. Probably been posted on here before but I may have missed it. HOW DO YOU GUYS LOOSEN YOUR DIZZY TO ADJUST THE TIMING??? I have everything in hand like running the self test and so on - timing is just out a touch and I want to adjust it just that little bit.
I have the ISC off trying to get to the bolt and bracket that holds the Dizzy, but I will be f....d if i can get to it. My sockets can't reach - even with my longest exyension and even with gloves (burning hands and arms on the cooling pipes), I can't crank the bolt enough to loosen it, but then again there is no room to get any force behind it.
Anyway, advice/help appreciated guys.
Just in closing - but is it just me that thinks the placement of the dizzy on the EA/ED would have to be one of the most f....d up things ever?? What were the designers thinking of when they came up with this excuse for ease of use.
anyway - hope some of you guys get on here tomorrow and I will get back to the timing then. F.....g thing.... :) .
