Got my columbo magneto drive on need help on how to time the mag
Still havent found any info .
Also need info on how to do the linkage
From 1st principles I would proceed like this;
1. I don't believe the mag you show has a "impulse coupling ", and that will make timing easier
2. With #1 piston at TDC, the rotor should be pointing to the #1 spark terminal AND the points should just be ready to open with the spark advance in the fully retarded position. This is the same as with a distributor.
3. If it has a impulse coupling, then I would have to study it
No impulse need find manual on this mag
