This is for minor timing adjustments which may be required for poor fuel or high altitude, normally you keep the adjustment in the central position and leave it.

The points are set with the rubbing block on the high side of the 4 sided rotor, this is the maximum opening of the points, the vernier adjustment is set in the middle of the adjustment, for practical purposes this in not normally adjusted, adjusting will advance or retard the timing, so set vernier in the middle and do a conventional timing adjustment.

JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY

WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE "SQUARE" PART OF THE DISTRIBUTOR SHAFT. THE PART THAT THE POINTS RUB AGAINST.

PLEASE BE REAL ACCURATE.A MICROMETER OR DIAL CALIPER MEASUREMENT IS HOW CLOSE YOU NEED TO BE

SEEMS YOU REALLY ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THAT CAR.I MAY HAVE SOME IDEAS THAT MIGHT HELP.I HAVE BEEN DOING A LITTLE RESEARCH. BUT I NEED THE DIMENSIONS

I'M WORKING ON A POSSIBLE SOLUTION, TO ELIMINATE THE POINT SYSTEM. GO TO INEXPENSIVE ELECTRONIC IGNITION!

YOUR CAR IS NOT ON THE LIST

I JUST BOUGHT ONE FOR MY JEEP.(1946 WILLYS)

SIMPLE TO INSTALL ON MY JEEP. NO BOXES. DISTRIBUTOR INSERT AND COIL ONLY. MAY MODIFY TO FIT YOUR CAR!

I WANT TO COMPARE DISTRIBUTOR SHAFT SIZES. JEEP VS: MORRIS MINOR 1000

BE ACCURATE WITH "MM"!

After adjustment to middle- Am I have to Readjust the Platinum Point Gap?

Mr Mhpautos - I set vernier, set point and timing, not replace condenser ( I think it is good)- then I went test run about 4 km after that the morris minor 1000 car was not Stop, But the ignition coil ( Bosch coil - new one, 12 v- Unresistant coil ) Heat, the heat not petty, can touch but warm - I think, if I go long Trip on my car, the coil is over heat then Stop- So I afraid to go far ? - How test the Distributer condenser Bad or Good?
