Rxp ignition timing
Hey everyone. The RXP is almost done so I can stop bugging you all! Anyway I'm putting a 08 motor in a 04. I pulled the 08 PTO cover and installed the 04 CPS sensor (just cut the indent in the case for wires. I removed the encoder wheel off the crank and drilled it in the 4 o'clock position (looking at the back) so I could turn it 2 bolt holes clockwise (looking at the back of the motor). I just went to fire her up and BANG. Massive backfire. Can anyone tell me if I did something wrong (which obviously I did lol). How can I check the ignition timing? To be sure that's the problem?

you use the 04 or the 08 trigger wheel (encoder)??

depending on what year trigger wheel you used you may have gone the wrong way when you moved it 2 bolt holes.

The original pin hole should be 2 bolt holes clock wise.
The new hole you had to drill should be 2 bolt holes counter clockwise.
Is that how you did it?
Have a picture?

Kinda a bad picture but the red dot is where I drilled the hole.

If you have the 08 sensor use it go back to stock placement and just adapt harness that way you wont be the extra 7 degrees out of time.

shit well if i knew that would work i would have done that.. no i have $100 invested into a CPS from a 04. The 08 sensor i have got the wire cut.

If thats where you drilled the hole and installed the pin I think you did it correctly. (7deg off of course)
It should run.
