Yes. It shows that the timing is about 12 degrees retarded according to the marks, but that would be constant throughout the range. The question is why this should be.

22 degrees b.t.d.c. suggests it's a diesel! A petrol engine should not be at that initial advance so something's wrong somewhere. If rpm reduces as the timing is advanced, it suggests that it is alrea ...

The important thing isn't the size of the battery but the resistance of the cable to the starter, which increases in proportion to length, and decreases with the square of its diameter. In English, yo ...

Might not be the pump; could be a blockage in the line or in the tank. Try blowing back into the tank; if the pump picks up after that I 'd remove and thoroughly clean out the tank.

Battery holder. They go on 1 end of the battery tray to hold the battery in. 1 piece per car.
Yep, standard over a number of models.

You'll probably need a smaller belt, and best using the bracket for an alternator rather than the one for a dynamo. How do you plan to wire it?

It should actually be stamped into the rim of the crownwheel, e.g. 8 : 33 = 4.125.

The 10hp engines' timing was determined by a pin screwed into the timing cover. This was unscrewed and turned around then pushed into ...
