16.11.6. Adjustment of a corner of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

The corner of the closed condition of contacts of the breaker is determined by an automobile tester or the probe by gap size between the opened contacts.
We uncover the distributor.

It is more convenient to regulate a gap on the distributor removed from the engine, but after that it is necessary to determine the ignition moment again.

For check of a gap on the distributor which is not removed from the engine we turn a bent shaft in situation at which the emphasis of mobile contact will appear at roller cam top (a gap between contacts maximum).

The probe we check a gap (0,35–0,45 mm).

If it differs from put, then for its adjustment …

… the screw-driver we weaken the screw of fastening of contact group …

… and adjusting screw. For convenience the runner can be removed (see Replacement of a rotor of the distributor).

ATTENTION! Turning off and wrapping screws of contact group, strongly do not press them as it is possible to damage the bearing of a mobile plate of the breaker.

Moving a plate of contact group, we expose the required gap and we tighten the adjusting screw. Having once again convinced of correctness of a gap, we tighten also the screw of fastening of contact group.
