Default Engine Timing For Mags

How are you guys timing your engine mags.?? I had an order in at Aircraft Spruce for the Rite System, but I have learned they are out of business. Thanks, Mark C. RV9A

I built one of these http://www.brewingtontech.com

Works fine and mag timing is fairly simple if you take your time and triple check everything. Have somebody who has done it help you the first time.

This is what I use every day in our shop. It has outlasted every commercially available timing unit we have used.

Yes, there is a time . . . I got the E50, great to have something to work out of the box.
