I have an m20 with a ( obviously non-original)thorspark-type ignition. It is mounted in the now empty orinal magneto housing. Advance/retard is manually. For this purpose the original groundplate of the magneto ignition and the advance/retard cable are retained. Cable enters the housing from the right.Ignition shaft spins clockwise. Timing is done in a similar manner as with the magneto :find TDC,turn back 11,1mm,set cable to full advance, set ignition to fire at this point. Bike runs absolutely fine,does not get exceedingly hot , but is something of a bugger to start.To help trying to improve this :can anybody tell me how many mm from TDC the ignition should fire when retarded,so on
Many thanks in advance and I will let the result be known.
