Hi,
in my 26 Roadster i have an Anderson Timer and after setting the 15 degrees ATDC (bending the rod) the engine is running rough. The timing leaver was all the way up when i set the 15 degrees ATDC.
I found an artikel to adjust the springs in the Anderson Timer:

I checked the settings what is written in the very nice report. And i found the following situation:

timing with Anderson Timer

Is that true, that all the four lines must congruently when the Coil starts ignite?

Regards
Markus

Looks like the crank handle was engaging on a different notch (there are 2) which would account for the marks being 180 degrees from each other. I think you are OK on timing and need to look elsewhere. I would start by verifying the initial timing is 15 degrees after TDC, It looks like you may be too close to TDC.

Look at a crank shaft. Cylinders 1 and 4 are 180 degrees off from cylinders 2 and 3. I say that looks normal to me, unless I'm missing something.

Marcus, that is perfect. The mark on the crank handle and using just one ratchet tooth is an improvement on my method which I will adopt.

Good show!
