Methods of Investigating Spark Timing and Its Scatter 740314
The investigation into spark timing characteristics was carried
out on a 2000 cm3 Ford Pinto engine mounted in a test cell.
Autolite, Lumenition, and Bosch ignition systems have been
Two methods of measurement of spark timing and timing scatter
are proposed, and evaluated in terms of dynamic and static engine
behavior. The relationships between mechanical and the electrical
aspects of ignition are discussed, particularly with regard to
contact breaker and optoelectronic firing.
