1982 S3 N/A IGNITION TIMING

Recommended Posts

As the workshop manual seems to give several different values, could someone please tell what the correct setting is for the ignition timing on a 1982 S3 n/a?

It all depends what type of dizzy and ignition control you have.

A 1982 S3 NA should have the Luminition module and the infra-red optics and chopper wheel, in which case it is spec 7,8 or 9.

7,8 are for the 45D dizzy (vac module) and 9 is the 43D (no vac module).

They are both pretty similar and it is probably a 43D dizzy so go with 9.

Thanks Hilly.

Mine is a Spec 9 engine with a Lumenition system and so (according to the book), that'll be 25 degrees BTDC @ 3,500 to 4,000 rpm; is that right?
