So my pinasco kit 177 aluminum is arriving in a couple of days, trying to get ahead I decided to check the current timing as I have no idea where it is.
I tried the static timing method explained in https://www.scooterhelp.com/tips/timing/points.timing.html but I couldn't get the lightbulb to dim or shine more, I even tried to slowly spin the flywheel a complete turn to see if anything changed at any point.
- Using a square 9V battery
- Using a indicator lightbulb, the box says 12V 4 CP
- The circuit is, casing to neg battery, pos battery to bulb to picking coil cable, just as in the mentioned link
- Closing the circuit with the second cable in the blue CDI when it is unplugged from the CDI, left to right, seeing the scooter from behind, which I understand is the cable attached to de picking coil
- I have no battery in the scooter
- When I did this, the bulb does not get on at all it is completely off and nothing happen when spinning the flywheel
- I tried to close the bulb circuit at the same time picking coil cable is connected to the CDI, when i do this the bulb barely shines and nothing happen when spinning the flywheel
Questions and comments:
- The most obvious one, I am doing this right?
- You think is something with the lightbulb or battery characteristics?
- I understand the IT mark in the stator is mean to be 18 degrees BTDC, i think this is what the pinasco 177 recommends, will check on arrival, you think I can trust this enough?
- I thought maybe the battery is to small to power the bulb through the whole circuit but this is not the case because I tried the other cables in the CDI and the bulb shines with a "good enough" intensity
- I have no idea what to do...
- When the kit arrives I will be posting questions here
