Hi - I have a Dutton Phaeton with an RS2000 2.0 litre pinto engine in. It has a webber 32/36 carb manual choke in but is running very roughly. The car starts ok and runs ok in lower rev range but as…Continue

"Getting a new high power coil delivered this week as the spark seemed almost non existent - hopefully will start again on Sunday - fingers crossed."

"Its 180 degrees out  as Ade says , Take  the cam cover off to be certain both valves are closed on number 1 cylinder before setting timing"

"Start with TDC, check camshaft position - crank rotates twice for every turn of the cam.  If the crank and cam are pointing at the markers THEN you can set the dizzy."

"I just had a look at the position of the distributor and the relation with the rotor arm and found the red sensor on the distributor was 180 degrees off from lead 1.I am now setting the rotor arm to point at the sensor when the engine is at tdc and…"

"We squirted a lot of fresh fuel directly into the carb as we were turning the engine over and when it did run the engine was only firing on 1 or 2. Will do the fresh fuel thing and have a look at the baseline settings for the timing - the setting is…"

"You can just take off the air filter and slosh some petrol down the carb. I do that when the car has been standing for a while in order to save using the battery to turn over the engine just to pump the fuel into the carb. I don't actually…"

"Thanks - I set the static timing by putting the engine to TDC and noting the firing position rotor of the original distributor was pointing at plug lead 1. The firing order of leads on the distributor cap is correct. When I put the new distributor…"

"I have an Accuspark Bosch conversion in my Legerra. The 'firing' point is way off where you would expect it to be. It took quite a few attempts to get the right 'slot' on the dizzy. With so many altered variables in play I…"

"I would check that you have the ignition leads in the correct order going into the distributor for the Pinto firing order. If that is wrong then you might only get 1 or 2 cylinders firing and if you change the timing you might be getting one of the…"

"When I put the new distributor in I set the rotor to point roughly at lead 1.we then tried to start it and when it did eventually fire it was only running really roughly on 1 or 2 cylinders. When it was running like this we moved the distributor…"

"OK - so an update - worked on it all day today - got a powerspark electronic distributor and fitted it today - no issues there. Got a new set of accuspark triple cored plugs in that are getting a strong spark. Did a compression test and all 4…"

"Thanks. Which distributor would I need to put on to make it electronic ignition and take the points system off."

"I had this exact problem a couple of years back, the AA man said it was the fuel pump, turned out to be the condenser..... it now has electronic ignition :-)  "

Daryl Heasman replied to Glenn Ryder's discussion Wont start now!!!
"I would do a compression test to start and if that's ok check the fuel for water , its possible the spark is breaking down under compression due to faulty coil or condenser, does it even try to fire  "

I put up a thread about problems i was having with the car a few months ago which can be found under my post Any help on getting the engine running smoothly???Hi - I need some help again with a problem I have with my Phaeton. All was going well after i fixed the carb problems but recently i have discovered a further fault. It was running ok for a short time but then I took it out for a short run on boxing day and it started to splutter and eventually cut out on me. It refused to start again and…See More
