Can’t set ignition timing correctly

1120 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Rob Axel
I’m having trouble setting the timing correctly. I’ll set the left cylinder perfectly, lock it down, then check it again. Still dead on. I set the right with the same process. Get it perfect, lock it, and check it. When I get the right cylinder timed perfectly, the left cylinder timing changes.

I have a CMC electronic ignition.

I’ve adjusted the cam tensioner. I’ve tried cleaning, lubricating, and tightening the springs on the mechanical advance.

What else could cause my issue?

Are you speaking of the "shockwave" system?.. several members here have done the beta-testing. Still awaiting some "reviews"...
