    Default 202 timing

    Hey was wondering what the best timing for a stock 202 is, I installed a electric dizzy and had it at 8deg but yesterday I put it at 6deg and it seemed like it had much much more torque

    Leave it if it likes it and does not ping or get hot.....If you timed it with a light on the Harmonic balancer it could be anything as they move.Imo.

    I had a red 202 on gas a while back. Fitted a blue elec dissy. I think i timed it by feel at idle and got it pretty good in the end. Checked with a timing light some time later and was a fraction over factory spec (pretty sure it had a 186 head to bumb up comp). I can look up stock timing in the manual if you like?

    Playing with timing had quite an effect on power higher or lower in rpm range, idle speed, and ease of starting. I messed with it heaps before deciding where to keep it.
