Help!I have a 1986 Mercedes Benz 420 SEL with the 4.2 liter V-8First off the vehicle was taken for a smog check all results from the check Passed Except Ignition Timing---Current setting 20 Degrees @ 900 rpm. Spec Setting should be 12 Degrees @ 600 rpm
I was told to start by setting the Crank pulley @ 0 degrees and then set # 1 piston at top dead center I did! And then make sure Dist Rotor Is pointing at # 1 cylinder It was. Loosen the Dist Bolt I did. Start the vehicle and with the timing light check crank pulley marks at that point I got lost.
Please help If you can thank you thomas.
