    Default Free stock M715 stuff!!!

    I just changed the points in my truck using a feeler gauge as the manuals a guide. The first attempt left me w/ a rough idle and the second attempt was good but could possibly be better.

    When adjusting points on an old air-cooled VW i use to own, I found that using a meter was more accurate and the vehicle ran better. i wanted to use my meter on my truck but could not find a specification in the manual - anybody know where the dwell should be set?

    I found this through the civilian manual, 38 degrees...thats what I set mine to and I agree, the dwell meter is the way to go!!
