Dist maint Q

I want to check the air gap in my Nippendenso distributor. The reluctor point is supposed to be up against the metal pickup thingy, right? Is it supposed to be that way with the car off, or do I have to move it there? I tried turning the shaft, what gives?
Also, what makes a timing light "inductive" vs. non-inductive and why does it matter? Is a cheap timing light a dwell/tach just fine or should I get something decent?

You want an inductive timing light - it's just how the light hooks up to the car, and induction is easier to use. Cheap timing light works fine for me, these cars aren't rocket science, so they don't need anything fancy.

as for the air gap just like GD said it usually does not need to be checked. you can usually feel the play in the shaft if it is excessive.
what type of problem are you tring to fix?
