Overview

Aluminum CNC tool manufactured in Alaska for simple and perfect magneto timing.

Very easy to use! Simply position engine on #1 TDC compression stroke. Lube grommets. Put this tool on the top two propeller nuts and sight down top case halves to see exact mag timing. Now there's no need for propeller protractor cones!

Applications

Specifications

  • Place Magneto Timer over the prop nuts and slide down the casing split to set the timing.

CONTINENTAL ENGINE MAG TIMING TOOL O300D / 470 / 520 / 550

I saw an ad for this in the Cessna Pilot Association magazine and the ad said the tool for the 470/520/550 was also for the IO 360 ( which I have on my R172K Hawk XP) . Turns out that it works fine but with some exceptions. The clearance between the prop hub nuts and the front of the engine is too tight to insert the tool with the friction grommets in place. I removed the grommets and could slide the aluminum gauge in the gap and over the nuts. There was some minor side-to-side slippage, so I used some double sided foam tape to secure the gauge exactly when the #1 cylinder was at TDC to align the TDC mark on the gauge . Without the play, the 20deg notch was solid and good for timing the IO360KB engine. Happy with this
