Distributor phasing?

Post  J.Toney on March 6th 2012, 9:20 pm

Picked one up on racingjunk and didn't see the hole in cap at one of the terminals. Seems like I've heard of this term 'phasing' and drilling the cap was part of it. But I don't follow. Can someone explain this? Laughing

Drill a hole at your #1 terminal. Start the engine and put the timing light over the hole and it should light just as the rotary button passes by the hole.

You have to phase it in when you use a crank trigger..

Rotor phase refers to the alignment of the rotor with the terminals on the dist. cap. It's done when using a crank trigger, since timing is adjusted at the trigger insted of the diz.

We wondered if it was a "bad-ass, cranktrigger race thing" thing. Very Happy So on a crank trigger deal you just move the pickup to adjust timing and get rotor to fire in the center of the terminal? Did I just repeat what you told me? Rolling Eyes Thanks for the insight dudes! Very Happy
