Just wanted to share my opinion of my Matco timing light. I used it to set the timing on the '90 460 I have been working on for a while. It is so easy. This engine has a base timing of 10 degrees BTDC.

Now, I COULD have just set the timing mark at 10 and called it good. But I wanted to use the nice Timing Advance feature of my gun and so I set the gun to 10.0 and set the mark to Zero. And just to check, I then set the gun to Zero and checked where the mark was. Right on 10.

Not to mention I got this gun brand new, for $75. The guy needed money. I couldn't pass it up.

Just wanted to pass along my feedback.

I've got the same one. Mine must be a fuzz older because it has a dial for timing. Very nice light.
Hey guys, I just joined, and I have an issue with this light.
I have tried it on a car and it works great, much better than a regular strobe, however, the 2nd time I tried it all the functions operated as they should, however the strobe light did not flash, everything is connected as it should be, all the buttons do as they should, but I do not have a light flashing, does anyone have any idea's as to the problem.
Thank you in advance.
