F35 / F36 ignition timing


Recommended Posts

For the record, and for people who may read this in the future, even when we KNOW what position #1 is supposed to be in, on many engines it is possible change it (get it wrong) if the piece with the distributor drive gear on it is removed from the engine. That could be the distributor itself, or the oil pump depending on make and model. Sometimes people over the years have screwed it up during an overhaul, not realizing it is only supposed to go one way, and find it easier to move the wires around than take the oil pump back off. There is no guarantee that #1 is still where the auto manufacturer put it. That is why it is always best to check the way @Peter R. suggested. Then you know.
