My 26 starts good but should have more power. When you advance the timing lever the engine hardly speeds up. My model a revs with the increase of timing. Do I need to bend the rod from the quadrant to the cummulator? It has always had tru fire ignition. T
When the rod moves the cummulator it hardly revs up the engine in the advance position. Thanks for your opinion and help
I have no experience with True Fire, but with a Ford, Tiger, New Day, or other normal timer, the engine does speed up as you advance the timing. This will work for most timers, but I don't know if it applies to yours:
Steve, I agree completely with your timing setting. The trouble is that it it very difficult to see the position of the crank pin on the later model T.
Randy, just turn the crank until the hole in the pulley for the pin is facing up and mark the front edge in line with it. That will give you a reference for crank pin position.
