Hey guys i need a timing light and saw one today at o'riely for only 40 bucks.. is this a ok timing light? i dont need anything serious just something that will work..
Chances are it would be enough for most. If you spend a LOT of time under hoods and tuning your car or even others, you should then get a professional light. Mine cost $110 with a digital readout to check and adjust the advance, and tach read out. $40 isn't too bad of a price.
:hihi: :nogrinnerThere he goes throwing that high dollar timing light in my face again....:gringreen
My old craftsman won't die.......
the o'reily light should be good for what you need......
That's when you have to make sure you can read the timing marks on the balancer and set it that way.ok so i just got the light and how do i know what degree the timing is at? it has no display...
haha the reason it wast working is because i couldnt see the timing marks and numbers, so i took some white plastic crayon and filled in the marks and rubbed off the rest, worked great!
but i had one problem: I advanced the timing to 14 degree's, and when i re-connected the spout connector it went to 24 degrees.. what the heck?
