good point .. feeler gauges are set by feel. flat forgot to add after setting points, static time then followed with timing light and checking dwell.
dwell usually checks out within correct range after setting points with a feeler gauge for me. it's one of the few times Snap-on dwell meter and timing light comes out. just about everything else I work on is running electronic ignition or diesel.
