Hi, Wondering if someone could explain to me how to set trip lever for the ignitor. I am trying to set it to trip at or before TDC on commpression but everything seems 180 deg out of time? Only wants to trip the hammer on exahst stroke? Am i Missing something?

IIRC, there's two lobes on the camshaft, the lower one trips the igniter, the taller one trips the igniter and then operates the exhaust valve.

The ''trip bracket'' is adjustable to set when the igniter trips.
