Be sure to tell her to remove the timing gear cover before she takes the pictures. :D

Re: horzontal magneto thoughts

Was there a provision for retarding timing on these setups for starting? Or were they set at a single adjustment?

If he really used the original -36 distributor (10 spiral teeth), I have no idea how to drive it using any H-D parts. The original cam spiral won't work if the breaker shaft is rotated 90°.



Why would you need the timer when your are firing the cylinders with a magneto?

Here you are! and NO I will not ask him to remove the gear cover. You will just have to take my word for it. Gear Driven, 20 years, runs great!
