    does anyone have static timing tool instructions?

    this is for points style ignition.

    This is a tried and true method that many old timers have used. I have never done this but my bro-inlaw has.
    Use cigarette paper. The paper is actually very accurate. Just put it between the points and pull gently so as not to tear the paper. When the points open the paper will come loose. Remember the timing marks must match when the paper pulls loose.

    You can also use an ohm meter
