    Question about timing with the Tech-Time 3300 - high or low trigger point setting?

    just make sure you power the machine before plugging in probe. I never got my probe to work propperly with high trigger , bought the timing light , finding it works better with the low trigger point , and much easier to use then the probe.

    DTI Tech Time on the way!

    I decided to purchase the DTI Timing light , because I am not having much luck with the probe. Do I need to bring the engine up to 2000 rpm with the timing light to get a proper adjustment ? any other tips on using the light ? Thanks.
