The adjuster housing looked to have a fiber washer at the base. Not having the old one or one the right size, I came up with a simple method of wrapping 220 grit sand paper around a socket, then twisting a close fitting fiber washer onto the sand paper. With a little bit of effort the size was a perfect fit.
Not pictured, is the wire indicator pointing to the degree wheel. In this case, I used a coat hanger filed to a point. the Back end was bent into a 'U' shape then clamped down under one of the engine bolt nuts on the right hand side. After the degree wheel is set, the magneto points are set to open at 36 degrees (full advance: advance lever in its resting position, or closed). I'll test this several times; both with the advance lever in different positions. When the cigarette paper lightly slides out of the points, it should coincide with the pointer on the timing wheel.
While the cover is off I'll give the rocker adjusters a gap check.
Next step will be to begin cable making for the rest of the controls.
