Ignition

TIMING, SPARK PLUG and POINTS need to be set correctly for the engine to operate at peak performance.

'63 to '81 carts have a scribed line on the points plate and a notch on the side of the housing to designate the timing marks. Align these notches to return the timing to the original factory position.

Severe arcing of the points, or no spark, is a indication of a faulty condenser. The points MUST be gapped to specs. Please refer to the settings below.

POINT GAP    '63 to '81 .022-.024 in.
SPARK PLUG  '63 to '70 ----- .040
                      '71 to '81 ----- .025
