Nu-Rex Spark Timing Tool

Model A timing has been pretty loose regarding the process versus the results. Frequently timing is set by eye, looking into the distributor and taking a stab at moving the cam to the optimum position. Because the Model A has a manual advance, adjustments can be made from the driver’s seat and so this casual way of setting the timing can work. However, allowing for some adjustment, having the correct timing point in the beginning will make the Model A more efficient, run cooler and have more power.

Nu-Rex in Akron, OH, has been making various items for the Model A since 1990. They have come up with a simple tool that will allow the timing adjustment on point or transistor ignition distributors. For questions regarding this tool, contact or call 330-784-5334. The tools are sold through most Model A parts suppliers. Read the full article.
