Got any hints or tips? Share them here.
I've not seen one for a while but there used to be a screwdriver available, probably still is somewhere, which had a three pronged "gripper" on the end. You inserted the tip (straight or Philips) and at the same time pushed a button on the handle, then released and gripped the screw head. The gripper was released as soon as the thread had "started."Worked every time, seen many an electrician use one.
I tighten the points slightly so the points plate is gripped by the screw but still able to be moved by a thin bladed screwdriver, then tighten down and afterwards turn the engine again using the handle and re-check the points gap.Kevin wrote:Agreed but an improvement is always welcome and you often find that when tightened the adjustment has moved slightly and a hex key will make it less fiddly.Once again, having the right tool makes the job sooooo much easier
Letter in the post Woo Thanks.
