Vern Tardel's Timing Mark for Ford Flatheads
In the tradition of Vern Tardel’s “Let Me Help You” book series, Vern Tardel introduces a new hardpart to help all flathead engine builders and tuners set advance and retard on both street and race motors.
One of the odd things about the '32-'48 Ford flathead is that they have no timing mark to set advance or retard against, even thought they offered this adjustment. This simple temporary tool will firstly allow you to accurately mark your crank pulley and then accurately set the timing on your flathead. This assured accuracy will improve drivability, increase performance, offer improved idle smoothness and help stabilize fuel economy. Locates with two timing cover bolts with easy slip-on slots. The perfect tool to use, when updating to an electronic ignition system. For both permanent and temporary installation.
