Yes, what Bruce(VA) detailed below is what I was trying to find. Also, each time you make an adjustment, you need to rotate the tang to take the backlash out. Don't try to move backwards and set point gap. Set gap, lock down, rotate a few times then check again. I also invested in a front mount timing jig TOH makes and sells -see picture. Take all the fluffing around with steel rules out of the equation. Faster too. Anyone wanting one can find his contact info at windyridgefarms in our LINKS forum. I'm not sure if it was the timing jig or the sleeve puller kits he was out of last time someone inquired. If he is out of jigs, fellow administrator here Farmer Dan made his own version before Dan made his so try him too.
