I get that. But I guess what confuses me are the 2 holes in the flywheel. If I am hearing you right I rotate the flywheel so the “T” hole is over 1 set of points then set them to .018.
Then rotate the flywheel so the same “T” hole is over the next set of points and then set them to.018.
Is that correct?May 1, 2019 at 2:14 pm #174626
I am not getting this.
I open up both sets of point wide so I can put the flywheel on the shaft with the key in place.
Then I rotate the flywheel so that the “T” is over one set of points (Spark plugs are out so I verify TDC of the piston that those points work with) and set those points to close while up against the cam. Tighten down the points.
Am I correct so far?
Then without rotating the flywheel I set the other points to .018 and tighten down the points.
Do I have this right?
NO as the motor does NOT fire at Top Dead Center (TDC), it fires before TDC.
At what point does it fire before TDC???, well heck it is .235 thousandths before TDC, unless your doing a race motor, they are I think .265 before TDC. They make a tool for this specific purpose.
But this one can be done. Once the first or TOP cylinder is done rotate the crank so that the bottom cylinder is .235 before TDC, then set the corresponding point set to open at that point. Boom you are done..
I should make these tools….

I just finished my first outboard and I dusted the stator with Silicone Spray to slow the deterioration down.April 27, 2019 at 11:08 pm #174456
I replaced the original coils with the military surplus coils that I bought on eBay. They have a red wire and a black wire coming out of one side.
Do you know which wire goes to the points and which one to the ground?
Also, does it matter which coils plug wire goes to which cylinder.April 16, 2019 at 9:42 pm #173596
The old gasket had the plate under the gasket up against the lower unit. No copper stamping on my 1947.April 10, 2019 at 8:36 am #172999
What do you mean by “shaft”? if you mean the prop shaft, please explain how you do that without removing the pump impeller cartridge first.April 9, 2019 at 6:05 pm #172953
Do you pull out the cartridge and the impeller together?April 9, 2019 at 5:29 pm #172950
Getting the impeller out is a real pain. How do you do it without destroying the impeller?April 9, 2019 at 5:26 pm #172949
Nice. I made one as well. Not as fancy but it works.April 7, 2019 at 6:53 pm #172843
Will the SKF 5569 fit into the water pump cartridge?
