Default TImeing 1-1/2 h. p. M

undefinedundefinedundefined

I'm tryingto get a 1-1/2 HP M Runing. It started out with A American Bosch FX-1 Mag. The side plate was junk so I switched it for a wico side plate-trip-cam etc. All there. Timed the cam with the crank gear like one book said. Then reading another book it says to time by lineing marks on eccentric plate to mag. I think the lining the marks is correct, but just want to make sure. Thanks Harry

Fred, the marks on the eccentric plate aren't that importend for a Wico fired engine. See the images, when done like that it will fire just in time.

John,

Thank you so much for your help, this is my first engine and I have lots of questions for you. One more, I kept the cam gear for the American bosch mag as it was marked, the wico gear was not, can I interchange these gears? Thanks again for all your help.

The cam gear 9978T was in use from 1917 to 33 for the 1˝ hp, so you take the best. If you decide the unmarked one, make sure to punch a mark at the same place before assembling the parts. Take care.
