    I bought this for my 30 model a 4 cylinder. i want to install it to advance things along. it has a dimple on the shank that sits in the head. my question is id that dimple for timing it? or better yet does anyone have a good install and timing procedure for this distributor? thank you :confused:

    thank you! this helps a lot, now if i can just time it (no degree or marks, only TDC)
    have a blessed day Brett
     

  4. Easy one. You can get a graduated indicator from many of the Model A supply places. It mounts to your timing cover. Find TDC using your detent piece. Make a small mark on your crank pulley with some white paint and you are now ready to time with a timing light.
