Check/adjustment of the moment of ignition

Usually the ignition moment at the expense of mechanical wear is not displaced. However for the purpose of safety, the MAZDA firm ordered regular check of the moment of ignition within maintenance. The ignition moment also should be adjusted, if the distributor acted in film. The tachometer and a stroboscope are necessary for check and adjustment of the moment of ignition.


    To warm up the engine to working temperature and to muffle it. To connect a tachometer and a stroboscope according to instructions of the manufacturer.

1 — the ignition distributor
2 — connection to a battery stroboscope
3 — a stroboscope
4 — a cable of ignition of the cylinder 1
5 — a cylinder 1 spark plug
6 — the capacitor plug of a stroboscope

    On some models to the diagnostic tip being on a casing of the left amortization rack, it is necessary to connect the system MAZDA switch (SST 49B0199A0). To establish the switch A in a position 1, the verifying switch on SELF TEST.
    If this device is not present, follows перемкнуть GND and TEN contacts by a wire piece. On what models this requirement extends.
    If is available, to disconnect a vacuum hose of the vacuum device on the distributor and to stop up with a suitable pure bolt. At the dual vacuum device can be that it is necessary to disconnect only one of two hoses. To start the engine and to leave to work at single turns. Necessary number of turns at check. To disconnect everything consumers of the electric power (a radio receiver, heating of back glass etc.) and the conditioner.
    To shine with a stroboscope a label on a belt pulley of the crankshaft.
    The moment of ignition is adjusted truly if the yellow label on a belt pulley motionlessly costs opposite to the corresponding value of the moment of ignition on a casing of a gear belt. Values of the moment of ignition in the table.
    If the moment of ignition does not correspond demanded, to weaken tightening a bolt on the distributor and to adjust the moment of ignition by distributor turn.
    To tighten tightening a bolt on the distributor with effort of 25 Nanometers. To take out a bolt from a vacuum hose and to put on a hose the vacuum device of the distributor. To disconnect the system switch or a crossing point from the diagnostic tip. To disconnect verifying devices at the switched-off ignition. In a workshop it is possible to check still centrifugal and vacuum shift of the distributor at various number of turns. It is required only at malfunction of system of ignition. To check idling, if necessary to adjust, see. Head Power supply system, carburetor, system of injection of fuel.

1 — the Automatic transmission: number of turns of idling + 100 rpm

2 — the Number of turns of idling is regulated automatically.

3 — to Disconnect a hose only from the bottom vacuum device.

4 — to Connect the system MAZDA tip (SST 49В0199А0).
