Hi all, Me again. So if you don't remember the back story the brief history is: - have an 81 TCI bike, decided to switch to points using PAMCO ignition plate - found out that camshaft was in backwards (pause on PAMCO change) - rebuilt top end of motor - attempted the points install and the disc plate on the right side snapped in half - got new part shipped from Mikes (1/3), they shipped to wrong address - UPS delayed the reroute, just got back from ATL, part arrived on 1/15 So...I've got some questions that I need answered. Remember please that I have never owned a bike, this is my first. Since it's my first and it's TCI, I don't know how points work or are supposed to work. 1. The rod that goes through the engine. Mine has some play in it and no resistance at all. Here is a video of how easily it slides in and the play. 2. The instructions that I am reading say: 16. Hold the rotor firmly to the right (clockwise) when tightening the nut on the shaft.17. Hold the nut on the advance mechanism firmly when tightening the nut on the "rotor". So....16....the rotor is the piece that fits over the PAMCO plate right? And if so, I 'twist' it clockwise while I hand tighten the nut/lockwasher over the big washer? Does the big washer need to be 'centered' on the rotor? The lock washer that I got from Mikes is almost the size of the hole on the big washer and makes that pretty impossible. Here is the video..is this right? Now....back to 17....this is saying, hold the nut on the end of the shaft on the right side of the bike while you tighten the nut on the rotor? My rod doesn't seem to move once the plate/rotor and such are on there. Sorry if this is basic. Questions needed answered: 1. Should the advance rod have play and slide through the engine easily? 2. Is the rotor the 'T' shaped piece that fits over the PAMCO plate? 3. Twisting the rotor while hand tightening will make sure that it's fully clockwise? 4. Does the big washer need to be centered on the rotor? 5. Should the lock washer be so close in size to the big washer hole as shown in the video? 6. Am I supposed to hold the nut on the right side of the bike while tightening the left? 7. Should my rod move by hand with all the pieces/parts installed? Thanks...sorry for this.
