You're other suggestions are on track. The mag should be set loosely nearest the engine block. There is one last thing that you can do to "fine" tune the process. There is an access plate below the ring gear. There is a pointer on the back side of the front access plate of the bell housing that can be seen through the access hole. The ring gear assembly has a stamped timing mark on it that is hard to see, but by aligning both the point and the stamped mark, you are supposed to be at TDC of #1. Now you move the mag away from the engine block very slowly, until you hear the "click", now tighten her down and you're supposed to be timed.

What I done for a Case SC was let #1 plug out of the piston and feel the air. Once all the air was pushed out, I set the mag so the rotor was very close to the #1 spot on the cover. It's the top right plug. And when the piston was starting to go down, the mag should trip and you will hear a 'click'. Good Luck.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory.
