New Toy in Toolbox
#1
So, we were having problems with the engine running rough.
First place to look was the ignition. We applied a timing light and
found the values to be way off, only later to discover we hooked the
probe to the wrong spark plug wire. In the interim I bought a new
timing light. Turns out the problem is likely a bad fuel pump, but I
got the excuse to buy a new tool Big Grin

Looks high tech! I bought a fancy one last year with tach and the ability to preprogram the degrees you want then adjust to that number with the distributor. Love it! and use it all the times on my buddies cars to set their timing. They think I'm a genius when their car comes alive when setting their all in timing to 36 degrees.

Anyway, awesome tool you picked up. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.

Adjustable timing lights are awesome. So much easier to work with.

I want one of those sun testers.
