How to set distributor gl1100ad 83 asplencade

Post by grandalf » Mon Feb 11, 2019 6:26 am



Ive finally got motor almost complete now again, but im lookin at distributor and wondering which way the center faces. (center cam that rotates). I guess the part with the screw in it. eg: piston 1 is up and timing though little crankcase hole is set on F firing mark. Seams i can put the distributor center pointing left or right? how do i set this. a little confused.

Does look like a distributor don't it? There is a pin in the end of the rotor shaft and a slot in the crank shaft that it aligns with, it only goes one way.
