    Setting the timing on a 1200

    I've gotten everything else ready for the drop in, but need to set the static timing before it goes in the hull. This is a major pain to even check it, let alone remove the mag cover once it's installed.

    This is a 1050 flywheel, so I'm starting from scratch.

    Randy @ WatCon actually sells a bendix holding tool for this, that way you can time, adjust, time, adjust... without pulling the cover everytime. It's minty!!! (see pics of ours)

    Also, I can't tell, but because you posted in the "how to" section, are you looking for instructions on the procedure, or just sharing with us where you're at?

    Nice tool Art. (no pun intended).

    I talked with Doug yesterday about setting the timing, by observing the trigger point while in rotation.

    But, I'd still like to know the proper procedure for adjusting the timing.
    Again, this is a 1050 to 1200 conversion, so I think I should be setting the static timing first.

    Thanks!!

    I suppose I need to buy a shop manual, and stop asking things I should be reading.

    Believe me... no problem!!! Here's a keeper chart for sure. It comes in handy. This is for the 1200, 136mm rod and 70mm stroke.

    Very nice Crazy.
    Now, If I could get our resident Polaris dealer to cut me a deal on the dynamic timing adjuster.

    I can't justify $200 for something that'll be used once.

    The flywheel nut calls for 90 ft. lbs. with Loctite 271 or 262 (red) on the flywheel taper and 242 (blue) on the nut.

    Gotcha.

    I recieved the new pump coupler yesterday, so I'll be pulling the older style flywheel nut off.
