1966 Mustang (200 CID) Ignition Timing?

<< < (3/3)

A burnt out timing light is a burnt out timing light Jim.  Changing cars ain't gonna automatically make that timing light work again.  ;D

But if it don't work on a known good car, it will verify that the light is NFG.

Soaring:
AHA!

66GTKFB:
It's all that stuff you learn in e-e-e-lectronics skule.

Well, Uncle Sam sent me to electronics school back during Nam. Fort Monmouth, NJ for 6 months.  We built super hetrodynes, then moved on to working on the Philips microwave radios.  Big clystron tubes and we had to test each and every tube when the line went down.  Now, with the new radios, you just pull out a shelf that is lit red and throw another one in and you are back on line.  I just assumed the car was OK, and that the timing light was FUBAR.  I guess now I know what assuming does.   ;D
