distributor advance curves

Post by PTrek » Tue Jan 09, 2007 10:12 am

Can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable bolt on sensor to get TDC position into the scope from a pre injection era vehicle so that I can check distributor advance curves? Incidently, is there any charting support for this measurement ie graph of degrees advance versus rpm?

Sorry for the late reply to your post.
A breakers yard would be a good place to start for a sensor and flywheel. Is there a later fuel injected model that you could retro fit these parts ?
For the purposes of tuning this would seem a radical move. Is a strobe and accurate degree reference template around the flywheel pulley not sufficiently accurate ?

We do not at present support any ignition advance /rpm measurements but this is an area we would like to develop in the future.
