  • distributor adjustment

    How do you adjust the distributor for timing? I'm not familiar with the one on my 430. I'm sorta confused with the explanation in the repair manual.
    Thanks in advance,

    Turn clockwise to advance the timing and counterclockwise to retard it. The factory timing is 6 degrees BTDC but I usually set it around 8 or 9 degrees.

      I guess what I meant to say is, where is the bolt, nut, screw, etc located to loosen the distributor? I can't seem to find it
