Presync first then set screws then sync again, this time for engine condition. You can presync using 4 very small drill bits of equal size. Bike tach really not accurate enough to set idle, you do it more with ear than anything else. I listen at pipe outlet a bunch doing it. You have have 3 cylinders in such a way that they support the 4th and idle speed does not change but idle quality DOES. Like all 4 idle perfect at , then you yank a plug wire and idle speed screw up to again but only 3 running now. Give that some thought. Tach is worthless there. You MUST listen to exhaust tickover to be able to tell if the engine is idling smoothly. A plea on behalf of the smartass ones of us
Actron 612 Owner’s Manual
Muscle Car Legend Meets the 21st Century It’s no secret that the legendary Sun tachometer was an absolute requirement for any muscle car owner or wannabe muscle car owner in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and beyond. It was impossible to avoid ads for Sun tachometers in virtually every automobile related publication. Hyped as the 1 choice of professional racers, every fan of going fast, with style, had one.
Your V3 MicroSquirt® controller uses a variable voltage signal from a throttle position sensor (TPS) to determine when the engine is at or near full throttle (to shut off feedback from the O2 sensor), when the engine throttle is opening or closing rapidly (and needing an accel/decel enrichment), and when the engine is flooded and needs to be cleared.
Digital Verified Purchase I got this timing light Innova a almost 4 years ago. The first year it worked fine, though I only used it times on my car. I did use it once in on a friends car to make sure his timing was where it needed to be at 2, rpm, again worked as intended. I expected this unit to work but it now flashes intermittently. It does read out the correct RPM consistently, regardless I took their website advice this winter and bought a replacement wire harness Today we had nice weather here in Ohio and I finally got to test the replacement harness.
The new harness did not solve the intermittent flashing problem. Again though RPM reading is spot on, just flashing is intermittent. To eliminate the spark plug as the problem as their website implies, I used my old Actron timing light from doesn’t have the timing degrees or rpm which works like a champ.
checking small engine rpm?
Remove the distributor cap, right valve cover and the 4 cyl rocker arms and pedestal. Set up a dial gauge on the 4 intake push rod. Rotate the engine to TDC 1 cylinder.
One of the most important and basic tasks to perform on your is the setting of the ignition timing. The timing setting is what determines when the spark is going to be fired for each particular spark plug.
Kigara 3 There should be a switch with engine settings on it. The meter will have a switch for this. Set the meter for “tach” or “dwell. There should be a green lead on the dwell meter hook up meter that you would hook up to the negative side of the coil. This closing time allows the coil to charge. Checking the dwell angle. There should be a switch with engine settings on it. As has been previously stated, dwell angle is the number of degrees that the ignition points are closed during each piston cycle.
Dwell meter hook up has been previously stated, dwell angle is the number of degrees that the ignition points are closed during each piston cycle. These sparks are timed to fired at the correct times by a distributor cap.

Wasted spark with multiple coils It can also support coil per plug in some installs. For wasted spark you require a minimum of single “missing tooth” crank wheel, only engines with an even number of cylinders being supported. You need at least for 4cyl, for 6cyl or for 8cyl. However, the wheel is probably the easiest to obtain. The MS ECU can drive up to 6 seperate spark outputs, meaning it can run up to a 12 cylinder in wasted spark mode.
For a distributor based setup with a trigger wheel, simply follow all of the wheel decoder instructions but rather than setting SparkB, C, etc as outputs as in a wasted spark setup only set LED17 as SparkA output and ensure all other spark outs are NOT set:

Setting up and adjusting SU/Hitachi carbs on the Datsun Roadster by Keith Williams First things first. In order for the carbs to work properly the ignition timing and valve clearance must be correct.
Ask Question Step 3: Finding the Tach Wire First I found the output from the distributor cap. My distributor is hard to get to, so I had to remove a couple wire braces to reach it. Other than being almost out of reach, finding the correct wire was fairly easy. Add Tip Ask Question Step 4: Next I clipped the meter wire onto the white wire from the distributor. To be sure it was the right one, I had someone watch the meter as I revved the engine.
Be sure to mark or remember the wire for when you come back later. Add Tip Ask Question Step 5: Next, I found where I wanted to mount the tach, and removed a dash panel to access the wiring behind it. I chose to place the tachometer behind and below the ignition, where it would be out of the way yet I could easily see it. Note; When I was working on this project, I also installed a new stereo and rewired my instrument panel lights that had not been working.

Old Tach/Dwell Meter Question
Cant get any hits with the search function. If so, and you have a stock ignition The tach will connect to the coil. There should be two screw connections and one will have two pink wires. That is the connection that you connect to one of the pink wires run up to the indicator lights and light power for the speedo connects to for wiring up a tach. If you have an after market ignition, as long as its a dual fire, you can hook up the same way.
The NorthEast has magnificent driving weather this weekend. So, in the course of driving around I picked up a tach-dwell points tester at an estate sale. I can’t find instructions anywhere on its use. All I find is that is useful in timing. There is a switch on it that moves between ‘tach’ and ‘PT. Res.’. It seems to measure RPM and Dwell degrees for an 8 and 6 cyl engine and the tag stating.
It doesn’t care what voltage you’re using nor does it give a whit about the polarity hook the red wire to the hot side. Maybe in my next life I’ll spend more money on one and worry about it more, lol. The vacuum meter is telling the tale, though, and is what you want to address. I’m assuming you’re using the tube-type that sits on top of the carb and has a ball that floats inside it. These are great tools but you must realize they are the epitome of an analog meter in that what they measure flow only relative to themselves and because of this you must use only one for each set of carbs; if you set two meters on two carbs the readings would have nothing to do with each other.
Use just one meter for both carbs because you’re measuring fluid flow and you want to be able to compare the readings. What I’ve always done is get the engine running with both needle valves open the same number of turns, then used that as a base. From there it’s simply bouncing back and forth between the two carbs until you get the same reading.

The problem is that people fit voltmeters wired to the green circuit, which can be a couple of volts lower than the solenoid i. It’s battery voltage which is important, and any volt-drop between there and the green circuit is down to ageing connections, and the best alternator in the world isn’t going to cure them, although it may cover them up. It was only during a discussion with someone about alternators for a V8 conversion that it became clear – the Lucas alts are too long to fit in the factory position as the rocker cover is in the way!
It wasn’t a problem for Costello as he swung the alternator out from the engine, but the factory fitted the MGB V8 filter high up on the inner wing which precluded that. Hence a shorter alt that would fit directly in front of the rocker cover. Only just though, as the harness plug has to be wiggled off at an angle.
The compression test should be done with the engine cold. The compresssion test is pretty much the same whether the press-in or screw-in tester is used see pictures below. Differences will be noted.

The bike still runs on one cylinder but with a lot less power and will be very hard to start if you stall it. The tach MAY go to zero when this happens. Typically this lasts about 2 – 15 seconds and then may cut back in and run normally. Sometimes it will not run at all at low rpm. Tach is also at zero or may jump around wildly. Bike backfires badly, etc Gets worse when its hot. In outboards they’re called “Powerpacks” or “Pulse packs”. They go bad about every years and also cost a boatload excuse the pun.
This causes a charged coil to collapse and “fire” the spark. This is known as “Kettering” or “Induction” effect. While the pickup and triggering is the same, the output from a CDI ignition module is a short high voltage pulse to the coil. The pulse is from the CDI module is normally about volts. The CDI coil acts like a transformer and steps the voltage even higher.
