Default Distributor question

can the distributor be adjusted a click back or forward to get the engine firing on the right beat again like you could do in older cars? If so how do you do it?

Thanks!

Default Re: Distributor question

Since we don't have a distributor that would be tough to do. "nigh on to impossible" as my grandfather would say.

You can adjust timing if you have a turbo if you have a PCM program modifier like the DSP, but it usually isn't bought just to adjust your timing. It's to expensive for just that kind of function and not for a novice.

If its out of time your belt had to slip. If it had a distributor you couldn't adjust all that out. Tell every body what you got going on. It might not be that bad.
