Re: How to properly set timing when changing distributor?
I've always drawn a mark with a pen or something, removed, installed back on the mark and called it a day....as long as it was correct to begin with.
IF like the 5th gen's (94-97), which means use this at your own risk.
You'll need to look up the pins on the connector that need to be jumped to get the codes, search on-line or in this forum, I think I saw something just in the last week on here about which ones. Once those are jumped you should be in "test mode", which means the ECU is not trying to adjust the timing....so you can set the base timing.
I'm sure to get flamed from here....good luck.
