So here it goes dumb it down for me. Anybody care to share their base timing for a 5.9 magnum. I set it up like I would any distributor rotor dead on#1.-10 on the balancer and -10 on the controller and starter was kicking back. Changed to 0 on controller and still no fire. Still fighting with the starter. Rotated the distributor CW a little and it fired but shut down immediately. Kept monkeying with it and got it to run but have to pedal it and timing is way retarded. I can hear it in the exhaust. Firing on the down stroke. Handheld is set at -25deg. I think I know what the problem is but I want some input. First off the PWM for fuel pump is a load of crap. I’m running an in tank pump and want to use my own relay. Who would want to use their 18-20gauge aluminum stranded wire to power a 15 amp circuit. Anyways I didn’t realize that the my relay was trying to be controlled by PWM. Obviously it will see it’s initial prime at 100% but then will send a pulse not strong enough to open the relay. In my frustration I think I rotated the distributor past the sweet spot. I think that’s why it popped over and did not fully start. It only supplied 12v during the prime period than the signal was not strong enough to power the relay to turn the pump on. How can I set this thing to give full 12v to energize the relay. I’m about to just the relay to key on/crank. Next comes Instuctions talk about centering reluctor paddle. If I do that than technically I’m 22.5 deg off from the get go. The signal to fire is when the paddle crosses the reluctor. So if I’m in the middle of the 45 deg swing to the next post on the cap I’m 22.5 deg off. Correct? If you set your advance in the handheld this can compensate. I had to draw this on paper to make sense. I’m still questioning myself on if I’m correct. I am running a tsp distributor the 50$ one that is not a direct msd clone. Has 2 wires. Spring and weights removed and it’s welded to lockout the advance. My experience has been nothing like the YouTube videos with the one try one starts but most are not using timing control. I’m curious where you guys set your base timing for a 5.9 magnum also.
