65 SS80 running at last
« on: 19 October, 2020, 14:38:09 »

 after many months of work its actually running !
 seen so many ways to time the ignition ,s !o much on the forum I thought I would try 15 degree BTDC as my action plate has 10 degree advance ,   wouldnt start ,loosen tappets to about 12 thou,held throttle open about one quarter and it fired ! go oil return . I think this the first start scince about  1974 ,hope it keeps running!time to put primary case on and try it !!
