  1. 1. Owner's Manual 1 Ignition & Timing The car is running a points distributor with gap set at .018" or set 30 degrees dwell. Ignition timing 12 degrees BTDC with vacuum hose disconnected and vacuum is spark port. Switches The toggle switch on the far right side of the instrument panel (see Picture 1-A) is the Fan Switch that turns the electric fan on and off. This switch is totally manual, so don't forget to turn it on and off. The toggle switch on the left side of the Fan Switch (see Picture 1-B) is the Hi-Beam Switch. The 3-way toggle switch on the transmission panel (see Picture 1-E) is the Turn Signal Switch. This switch must be manually turned off and it is independent of power from the ignition switch (can be turned on without the key).

Remove the wheel by pressing in the Release Button (see Picture 1-J) and pulling the wheel off of its hex mount. Step into the car and grip the Grab Handle (see Picture 1-K) to help lower yourself down into the seat. Replace the wheel by pressing in the Release Button and aligning the hex mount.
