S6 ignition
« on: 15 Oct 2016 at 05:01 »
Hi folks

I've forgotten which direction the points face when timing on the front cylinder - could someone remind me please?

Cheers, Graeme

Graeme,
              On BTH mags, the points usually face the cylinder that is firing - that is, when looking at the points, they are at 9 o'clock when the front cylinder fires. Unless you have disturbed the timing gears, it shouldn't be possible to get it firing on the wrong cylinder as the mag has a dog drive, so will only mesh in the correct position.
  Regards,
               Eddie.
