Re: Novice EFI install
This is really the only part of the installation that is a little tricky. The FAST dist comes set up for a 50 degree crank reference angle. Make sure that the setting in your software is at 50 degrees. Disconnect the coil!!! Then set your number one cylinder to 50 degrees BTDC on the compression stroke. Line the rotor up with the #1 terminal on the cap and install the dist. The Dist comes with a red wire for power to the dist. This should be on a circuit that is hot in the start and run positions of the key. There are two LEDs that will light up on the dist, One for cam signal and one crank signal. The cam signal is on the left and the crank signal is on the right. With power to the dist, rotate the base back and forth until the cam signal LED lights. Now rotate the dist counter-clockwise until the first crank signal lights the crank LED. Rotate the dist back and forth to find the leading edge of the signal. Tighten down the dist. The light should flicker as you move the dist back and forth. Put everything back together and start the car. Check your timing to the timing tables in your software just to make sure. Tip: temp set your timing in the idle area of your table to a constant number so that it doesn't jump around when you are checking it. Pretty easy, just a little confusing.
