I can’t seem to find a good answer to this question searching the forum, so, forgive me if this is dumb.
I’m trying to set the timing on my 1980 Honda express NC50. I set the points gap properly (0.014), but when I do the light test, it changes dimness between the F and T mark. According to the manual, I have to move the Points assembly forward, but doing that increases the points gap. Is that the point of this? The points and timing adjustments are on the same assembly, so moving one changes the other. I have a good coil and condenser. 100% sure if it.
I’m doing this because of excessive smoking and lean conditions. I’ve changed the crankshaft gaskets (thanks for the YouTube video, ChurioZ!) and before I test it, I want to get this right to avoid doing it again (do it all at once since I have it apart, if you get where I’m at).
It seems like it might be firing late based on the light test, but I can’t seem to get the points at 0.014 AND adjust the timing at the same time without one effecting the other. Any advice or tips? Maybe the point gap needs to simply be wider?
Hope this makes sense.
