    How to check timing on 96xp

    Hey guys im looking at getting a msd enhancer for my 96xp im wondering how do you check the timing so i can adjust the enhancer accordingly. I know you need a timing light but that's all i know.

    Thanks

    MSD makes a timing tape you tape on your rear PTO. You need to make a pointer that crosses over the PTO, (I made one from a piece of sheetmetal, drilled a hole in it to accept one of the rear engine mount bolts, then bent it on a 90 to cross over the PTO). Then it's best to get a micrometer and stick it down #1 spark plug hole to get true TDC. Mark this point on your PTO, at your pointer's overlap point. Then install the MSD tape putting 0 degrees at the TDC point. You can then check it with a timing light.

    BTW...your sig rules man!
