    218 Timing Issues

    Update. Got the car timed, running, and the carburetor and timing tuned in using a vacuum gauge. Turns out previous owner had put the distributor in 180 out amongst other things.

    Gonna have my dad crank it while I slowly rotate the distributor tomorrow.

    I set tdc using the timing plug removed and a piece of thick wire watching it rise and fall and listening for the valves opening and closing.

    The points will open correctly when the lobe hits them. I have checked the breaker and points with a test light and the open and close with the lobe. The issue I have found is when the car is TDC neither adjustment will allow a lobe to hit the breaker.

    When attempting to start the car manipulating the throttle will get it to putter momentarily but won’t stay running. Looking to replace distributor with a Langdons HEI.

    The dizzy cam will spring back when twisted and let go.

    Sorry for not being clear. At cylinder 1 and 6 at top dead center neither adjustment will get the points to open. Timing had to be adjusted to as close to TDC as possible to get them to open. About an inch away from the timing marks.

    They open and close properly when a love actually reaches them.

    Thanks a bunch guys. With the engine set on 0 degrees TDC per cylinder 6 neither adjustment allows the cam to open the points

    Loosening the distributor bolt and turning the distributor in either direction will not open the points.

    Hello folks. I have a 51 218 motor in a 51 Concord. I have compression tested the motor and all Cylinders match within 10 psi and all cylinders are around 90. I have rebuilt the carburetor and can get the car to run momentarily if feathering the gas. I attempted to static time it today using the method on this forum and when timing is set to tdc on cylinder 6 no matter the distributor adjustment the points will not open. Any ideas?
