Is there timing on a 2 stroke?
Timing is set on a 2 stroke by adjusting the stator. You need a dial indicator in the spark plug hole. Set TDC to 0 on the dial indicator, then turn the engine over counter clockwise until the timing marks line up. The reading on the dial indicator will tell you the timing. via

Is a timing light necessary?
Simply put, a timing light helps to fine tune when the spark fires from the spark plug and ignites your car's fuel. Properly adjusted timing, in turn, helps to make sure your engine works at peak power and efficiency. via
Can you time a motor without a timing light?
If your timing is not properly set, you can adjust it using a timing light and a set of tools to carry out the job. However, this process can also be carried out without a timing light. This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to set ignition timing without timing marks or timing light. via

How do you do static timing?
Static timing means setting the timing with the engine stopped. You set the crankshaft at the correct number of degrees before top dead centre, then adjust the distributor by turning it until the contact-breaker points are just opening. Stop wasting time on YouTube and get serious! via
Will timing affect idle?
Yes. In the case of both valve timing and distributer timing (in older cars with a spark distributer) changing the timing will affect the idle speed at the same throttle setting, because it will affect the efficiency of the engine at that throttle setting. via
Will you get spark if your timing is off?
No, if your engine has a bad timing belt, or timing belt slips, you could still have sparks. Timing refers to the sequence of which events are happening in an engine combustion cycle. Having bad timing can cause problems like poor engine running. via

Can you flood a 2-stroke engine?
When it comes to a two-stroke engine, flooding is a common problem, but it is not a difficult one to diagnose. After all, flooding is simply a case of too much fuel in the combustion chamber, which causes it to be unable to ignite and thus impossible to start. via
Why won't a 2-stroke engine won't start?
Check the following: Clogged muffler, clogged exhaust port, fuel restrictions, low compression, poor ignition spark, too much oil in gas or improper air/fuel mixture in carburetor. . Clean carburetor jets and air filter. via
Why does my 2 stroke have no spark?
If there isn't any spark visible when kicking the engine over, follow these steps: (1) Check the metal cap on top of the spark plug and make sure it is tight. Give it a gentle twist with a pair of pliers if it isn't. (2) Make sure that the spark plug lead wire is solidly connected to the spark plug cap. via

What causes pinking?
Pinking is the nicely descriptive word for knocking or detonation. (i.e. you can hear 'pink' 'pink' when detonation is occuring in your engine). Detonation occurs when your fuel/air mixture prematurely detonates due to high heat/pressure or a high octane fuel with a dumb car (no knock sensor). via
How does inductive timing light work?
How does a timing light work? The inductive clamp is sensitive enough to “read" the pulse of the spark plug wire firing. Each time the distributor or coil pack fires through the wire to the spark plug, the timing gun senses the electrical charge and simultaneously fires a light pulse out the end of the gun. via

How much vacuum should I have at idle?
Normal manifold vacuum at idle for an engine in good condition is about 18 to 22 in. -Hg. via
Can timing cause low vacuum?
Low vacuum can be caused by low compression, intake leak or tight valves. If the vacuum is higher than normal, it's a sign of advanced timing. via
How do you check camshaft timing?
To confirm accuracy, you need a dial indicator with a measuring range of at least 1 inch on each lifter. With both valves closed, set the dial indicator at zero. Begin with the intake valve; slowly turn the crank clockwise until the lifter rises 0.050 inch. Stop turning the crank and read the degree wheel. via
