It's been a while since I installed one, to advance timing which way does the key go? :dunno:

Yes that is what I thought but I wasn't sure.You need to advance the flywheel clockwise with the key.[/b]
Yes that is what I thought but I wasn't sure.
It has been 5500 reliable miles on my 2000 T-Cat with 01 engine & electronics since I installed one in a next to new engine. I put in a 2 degree key from Black Magic and it is the one decideable thing that finally got me over 120 mph.
I don't have to worry about a bunch of guys going a cazillion miles. I only have 5500 miles worth of experience and that is enough for me. My plugs and domes always looked great. I am a pretty fair engine mechanic myself. I don't have EGT's but I have never had a problem with the midrange lean spot. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I guess maybe I will be OK since the econmy does not suck so bad in Canada :flag_canada: [/b]
Just goes to show you that bad gas is bad gas. Nothing to do with a key. I have had water take out a cylinder a long time ago. Always run isopropyl. Water in the gas isn't as bad as really old gas.I just sold my red sled, pictured below to a guy out side of Toronto, He has logged over 800 miles miles on it since he bought it 4 months ago, it had 700 on it when I sold it.
He called me Friday as said he just poped that one.
Stock bore, stock heads, stock compression, no key, the jetting has been the same for 1500 miles, I told him he got bad gas so He drained his tank and had and sure enough, it had water in it as he went to a hole in the wall gas station and made it about 50 miles toward home when it quit.
I am not ranting, I am just trying to save you a lot of grief.
It's not if it will blow up, but when????[/b]
thundercat900, I go for reliability also myself. As long as no one passes me. I heard the old 900's were more advanced on their timing then the 1999 & up but I don't know for sure. I know a guy running a 4 degree in their 2000 T-Cat CDI.[/b]
