Try switching the wires on the boyer plate where the points used to be.
What I was thinking when I read your post. Also this might help...Switch the plug leads and see what happens.
The cams spins half speed of the motor!i used a timing wheel off the cam
I was thinking he meant the crank...The cams spins half speed of the motor!
Put the degree wheel on the crank.
Depends on the degree wheel. This one screws onto the cam. I don't think a 64 will have the TDC plug thingy So use a depth gauge or some sort of measuring device to find TDC in the spark plug hole. Does your boyer plate have two holes? Make sure your using the correct one. Check for air leaks. In all the excitement of your first build, it's easy to overlook the smallest of things. It's a process of elimination but eliminate one thing at a time or you can run yourself in circles.
If you have spark then the Boyer is working. Comes down to timing.the thats the wheel i have and the tdc thingy on the crank is not there. so a nother day to check it out im figureing things out as I go thanks for the help ill keep ya posted. Is there any way to test the black box to see if it works the way its suposto. Oh and my boyar did not come with any instructions so i was using the hole that says cw timing thats the correct hole ?? mitch
