If there is no other adjustments needed On the label ,which should be your first and only reference by the way UNLESS it clearly does not belong to that vehicle , then NO you do not check the timing and write the note on your VIR --timing not adjustable PER under hood Label.
for TIME OUT i would suggest that you do proper inspections and not just put yes adjustable if you are not sure or pass for evap even if you didn't do the test because if i see that on a customers vir i will do whatever i can for them to file a complaint because thats bs for those who know what we are doing
Bar guy write up on us for no check timing. He said if distributor has 3 bolts-then check timing.
he showed us pic of 91 civic, smart guy. We told him sure, and there are distributors out there with the "3 holes", but one of the holes is not elongated so what up?.
just check em anyway. star dings ya if not.
now that were beta-f-that.
I agree it is not adjustable. My buddy just replaced his distributor and I was at his shop. The original distributor mounting holes were only as big as the bolts so it couldn't be turned. He bored out the holes on the replacement distributor so it could be adjustable. He didn't jump the connecter so we were checking actual timing and not base. It was always at 15 btdc even when we turned it all the way to the left and right. Timing mark never moved not even a tick. Steady at 15 btdc as we are turning the distributor.
The label is GOD, read the fing thing no adjustments need. You go to a book that has more wrong data. You look at a book? The LABEL IS FROM HONDA the maker of the car. Why go to the book?
If the label is always correct how do you test the timing on chyrslers that don't tell you to disconnect the coolant temp sensor? Do you disconnect the sensor or not? Car comes in for a drivability issue on a ford taurus for lack of power you check the timing and it is off, the label says it is not adjustable do you believe the label and not adjust the timing? or do you adjust it because it is adjustable? The list can go on and on and on and on, there is not anyone answer that fits, there are many varaibles to this problem and experience is your best friend.
