Information needed on 1928 Dictator


Recommended Posts

I need some information on the spark levers on the 1928 dictator 6. When I start the engine, seems to have a lot of drag on the starter. Like an engine that the spark or distributor is not correct. I checked the point gap and it is set correct at .020. Also gets hot at times. Is there any information on how to set the two levers on the steering wheel so the spark is correct. Should the engine be started with the levers both in the up position and then move them later as it runs or should the engine be started with the levers down. Thank you for any help.

Thank you for the quick reply. I will use that procedure in the morning to start it.

I have a 28 Dictator and mine has three levers on the steering column, one for the lights, one for the Advance, and the other says Close. Would like to know what the Close level actually does. The Advance lever advances the spark on the distributor by turning it. But have not known about the Close lever. Thanks for any information anyone may share.
