Static Engine Timing
This video describes how to static time your engine using a 12 volt test light. Note that the video reference 10 degrees before top dead center for MGA and MGB, but for Sprites you should use 5 degrees as a starting point (and then use the nut on the vacuum advance for fine adjustments from there).
