I'm slowly rebuilding a 1918 engine and, since I haven't laid a wrench on a T in over 30 years, have questions. You know, things you used to know by heart but have forgotten with the passage of time.
In order to avoid asking things that have been covered many times before, I tried using the search function on the website and get absolutely no results every time. Am I doing something wrong or is the search function having problems?
You need to select "Whole words only" and specify a number of days. Using search terms that are too broad will bring too many results, which will be useless.
I usually search 3000 days if I want to see something that was posted in the past 8 years for example. The search function has always worked great for me, it has to be used properly though, like any tool.
The search fungtion gets overloaded and crashes if it finds more than a certain # of hits. One way to solve the problem is to reduce the number of days you're searching - or by selecting a certain forum year.
Mostly I use google instead - by writing the search words at google followed by site:www.mtfca.com
But there's really no problem with repeating already asked questions - sometimes even new ideas to solve problems appear
Not to dispute Royce's success, but rather to add another possible solution for you - (like the timers - many different ways to get sparks to the right place at the proper time)...
putting your question in your GOOGLE search box, followed by the letters MTFCA.
How to set timing MTFCA
Roger beat me to the answer !
I have found Google works much better that the search engine in MTFCA. Type MTFCA and what ever else you are looking for in Google.
Man you guy are quick with the answer...
