1966 Mustang (200 CID) Ignition Timing?

<< < (2/3) > >>

Did the timing light have a trigger or switch?  Mine has a trigger, so I'd hate to see you toss it because you didn't know.

It has a trigger.

Here is a photo of it.

If your red and black clamps were on tight and the pickup clamp was around the #1 plug wire, the vacuum advance tube was pulled and plugged, the engine was running, you pulled the trigger and got no light then the light is burnt out or the device is trash...likely the latter.

Not questioning your intelligence, just trying to be clear on the steps since you stated you'd never used one before.

Here's the cheapest timing light I could find online.  I'm sure you can find one from a local retailer for under $35.

Try it on another car.
