Does anyone have a scan of the msd or any other timing tape set they can email me for printing? I dont have a dial back timing light and was trying to see if someone had one. The Parts store doesnt have one in stock right now and I was going to work on my 68 this weekend.

One of Ignition man's posts had the cheap but good idea of setting the engine at TDC and marking 10 degrees up on the damper, using the degree marks on the timing tab, rotate another 10 degrees, repeat so you have 30-40 degrees marked off. then using the marks and the timing tab you can set any # of degrees you want.

Cheap and works. Especially on holiday weekends.

Mat, I've used that method many times and it works great. The tapes tend to fly off at any time.
