Hi,

I am trying to get the essential tune up settings for the 1010 4 cylinder gas engine.
So far I have
Points 0.022"
Plugs 0.025"
Distributor timing I don't have but would guess at around 6 degrees BTDC.

Could someone please supply timing for the distributor (Prestolite - if that makes any difference).

Thank you

JW

Hi John, set the timing to the 26 mark on the flywheel.

Later,
Doug

The 26 BTDC mark is for when the engine is running at 2500 RPM only, not when it's not running. 1010s can three different distributors (Wico, Delco, and Prestolite) and all have different type of centrigual advances.

Engine should be firing near zero degrees when not running and spinning over by hand. Your best bet is to check, when running, with a timing light. At full throttle, adjust to 26 degrees before top-dead center.

I'll add that most 1010s when well-used, run better when timed by feel, then when timed to factory specs. Try it and see.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your replies - that is exactl what I needed. We checked points and plug gaps - both were way out. Adjusted the timing by feel and then checked with timing lights when at optimum position. It was just a tad under 26 degress at full speed (governed). The exhaust clear and just a hint when the throttle worked hard.

All in all a satisfactory piece of work - makes ya feel good eh! Anyway, your advice worked and for that I thank you all.

JW
