RE: Timing problem  Curtis

Thanks for all your replies guys. I have to admit, I know nothing about
mopeds, at least I didn't until recently. I now know how to take off and
check the air filter. A huge step for me. Now about those points. I took off
the belt guard and the foot rest. This exposes a small kidney shaped window
to the flywheel about the size of an egg. If I turn the flywheel then
eventually a piece of rubber that is imbedded into the flywheel lines up
perfectly with this newly exposed window. Clearly the access window and this
rubber piece were ment for each other, they are the same shape. Am I getting
closer to my points? I was afraid to peal off the rubber to see what was
under there before asking around. Please help, I know I'm getting closer.
Also, someone showed me, or I stumbled apon...

This guide has a section on points that should help me once I find them ;)

Actually,Harry,the closer the gap,the slower the timing unless you
re-gap a set of points that has a thicker rubbing block due to wearing
down.Then the rubbing block being wider catches the cam lobe sooner and
starts to open the points sooner.At least that's been my experience.
