Ignition Timing Problems
« on: April 18, 2020, 09:08:44 am »
Hi Guys, Thought I would ask for some technical help. CB750K6 I have totally rebuilt this from the ground up.
Now I have been trying to time the ignition. Set the gaps at 14 thou.
1/4 - If I rotate the back plate to open at the F point its waaay out of position and can only get one securing bolt on [top one] the other holes are covered by the plate - see the picture.
If i set the plate with all three bolts and at best position its firing at the 1/4 marking before the F and T.
Now it runs in both positions but better at the 1/4 mark.
Have I got the camshaft timing wrong?
Can the camshaft be altered with the engine in the frame if its wrong?

Thanks for any help.
