Remove the hose and plug it on the manifold side so the vacuum advance is not energized and the engine cannot suck air. My book shows 10-12 degrees advance at 850 rpm. Apply vacuum to the advance to be sure it works, mine was shot and could not get one at the napa auto parts store but found a good one at the junkyard. Volkswagen jetta uses the same one.

Your welcome bobo. Did you get a book for the machine yet? They are helpful. The parts availability for these old bobcats is surprising, today I took the starter off and cleaned the drive up as it was sticking and saw it could use a new bushing on the drive end. The auto parts places did not really want to try to get the parts but I called bobcat and for $1.84 I can get a new one.

Your right....a parts book would be helpful along with a service manual that would provide me with the torque specs i need.Iwill be going deeper into the machine and all that info would sure be nice.Thanks BoBo.

The parts and repair manuals are worth their weight in gold. If you plan on doing and real work, i do recommend you get them.
