Johnson A-45 points setting

Postby Rapier » Fri Jun 08, 2018 5:18 pm

Are they supposed to be set to open to 020 at the point the flywheel & armature index lines line up?

Good morning
It's been awhile since I've done one but I believe the points should just be opening when the marks line up.
It just takes a little time getting them to open at the marks and then a max opening of .020.

Got the knack and did the same on a 1935 OBL-70 MasterTwin for it's 1st startup run today. Thanks! Tomorrow will be the turn of the '29 P-45 which didn't want to run properly when I finished it last year....
