Re: el xr6 engine problem
lol that doesnt change the timing mate. That just holds the dizzy cap in place, its a guide-line for when you change your leads that you have them facing the right way. To change the ignition timing.... just behind the dizzy there is a little brass clamp and a bolt in it. Feel around with your fingers to find it. Get a an 13mm socket, 1 long extension bar, a shorter one, and a rachet. Looking down through the intake manifold gaps (the 3-4th port) u should be able to see the bolt and clamp. Undo the bolt a little bit. Now twist the dizzy left to advance (anticlockwise) and right to retard (clockwise) If you're gonna run an advanced setup run BP 98 Ultimate in your tank at all times.
As for the leads... Mine were 2 months old when they stuffed up.
Whereabouts are ya mate? You should come over and ill give you a hand hehe
