Inductive Timing Lights


Recommended Posts

I noticed a thread here about using a D cell battery powered timing light. Here is my trick.

I have used an inductive timing light on a lot of '30's and '40's cars by pulling a modern car along side and powering the timing light from the newer car. Then you just clamp the inductive sensor on your #1 plug wire.

You can use a spare 12V battery, too, if you like.

This setup works a lot better than those old spring adapter ones.
