typical of ingorami (the garage) in that they either don't know what they're
talking about or assume the punter doesn't
and yes, the "book" timing method is OK but it doesn't work if someone's
arsed around with it.
Having said that, I've tweaked ours a bit and it's running the pump a few
dergees advanced from the "correct" setting, which improves it. Ideally,
apparently, it's worth adjusting the cam timing, but the consequences of
getting that wrong are a bit off-putting.
