Re: 1275 timing marks

You appear to have two empty holes in the cylinder head which are normally used for an additional stud/bolt. One hole is just behind the thermostat housing the other hole is at the rear of the head by the heater tap. If you do not have the corresponding threaded holes in the block then there is not...

Re: 1275 timing marks

Am I missing a bolt ?

Pinking occurs when the timing is over advanced, not retarded.
That will be why it didn’t pink then.
I knew that all along. Just trying to test you all...

Re: 1275 timing marks

So I’ve played with the timing and I’ve found the best setting is actually as per the book. I never really got it pinking even when retarded as much as I could but the performance definitely suffered. Now it’s running better than before and sweet as a nut with an even steady tickover. Next is the fu...

Re: 1275 timing marks

Thanks Phil I decided to bite the bullet and rotate the distributor and was surprised how much the marks/timing moved so perhaps I wasn’t that far away initially after all I did notice that whilst adjusting the distributor the point at which the revs were highest was quite a bit away from the marks ...

Re: 1275 timing marks

I’m 100% sure I’ve found TDC. That’s the mark with cross on it
Wether I’ve gone the right way withe the 7 and 22 degrees is another matter
If I have then at 1000 rpm my timing is a country mile away

Re: 1275 timing marks

Regarding the adjuster on the distributor how much does it adjust the timing in terms number of clicks/turns per degree
I advanced it half a turn and could not feel any discernible difference

Re: Ash Tray Position

Mines a 67 saloon
I understood there were holes already there for it
I’m hoping someone has the same model without carpets fitted so I can identify the exact position without removing the felt

Ash Tray Position

Can anyone send me a pic of the hole position of the hole for this ashtray?
Mine is covered in sound deadening which is glued down and I’m reluctant to lift it all off
Thanks

Re: 1275 timing marks

Well I don’t know about a fiducial pointer but this is what I’ve knocked up
Number 4 is on the rock and number one is at its highest point
Is that right ?

Re: 1275 timing marks

I’ve looked and felt all around mine and can’t see one
Not sure if there is anything different on a 1275 or my engine in particular
