Ignition timing

65

Asked by Apr 02, 2009 at 01:09 PM about the 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm working on my buddy's father's 86 fifth avenue 5.2L. I'm just doing a tuneup and changing filters and whatnot. What do I do to disable advance to adjust the timing?

Do I just need to pull and plug a vacuum line? Or are there any wires I have to jumper?

time it just like you would any other motor. clip on to number one wire, loosen the distibtor. i believe that the 318 are susposed to be at eight degrees
