good tip, never use timing marks on the magneto !
after each removal (or worse, replacement) they are off time.
instead use a micro meter (or caliper gage /slide rule) to determine the
place of the piston (1-2mm [depending on type] before top 'turning the right
mark the position with fine stripe of white paint and check with a
stroboscope while running. this gives also an indication of the timing
constant or timing advanve if aplicable.
