Title: IXB5 Timing
Post by: cork on March 08, 2019, 03:33:22 PM
I have an IXB5 stationary engine that Im putting together that I recently picked up. The mag. Is finished and timed with the crank. The gov. was off ...the mark is an S on the gear that drives the gov.  I dont know what to look for on the gov. gear.  Any thoughts? Id like to get this running. Thanks Cork

Is it safe to assume that I dont have to time the gov. gears? My thinking is that unlike the ixb-3 the mag. is not gov. driven.

Yes, on the 5 gear model the Gov is not timed.  The mag is driven by the water pump and that needs to be timed.

Could somebody please tell me how to time the mag. to the water pump?  Thanks

The water pump and mag just turn together. Therefore, you would just time the mag to the engine as usual.

Could somebody please tell me how to time the mag. to the water pump?  Thanks
