Thank you Stefan

Thanks

the valve clearance for exhaust matches the WSM for HOT and 400, 401 and early 403. But inlet seems definitely wrong.

B400 - HT leads plugs

I need new plugs because 2 are worn.

Does anyone have a recommendation for vintage plugs? What's about plugs with suppressions? I can hear every spark in the radio.

Thank you Geoff

I don't have a dial indicator.


I'd checked with 0,002 and with 0,005.

0,002" -> 60 BTDC and 70 ABDC
0,005" -> 50 BTDC and 65 ABDC

Therefore I've to aks if I...

Here comes the drawing- for better reading twice. But I don't know the context of this drawing. I hope it was generated after purchasing a new camshaft.

B 400 - backfire

During measuring the voltage at 3000 rpm all the carburettors produced backfire. I'd heard that backfiring while driving before but not as many as during that test. Any hints?

B400 voltage

I'd measured the voltage with a modern meter at 3000 rpm. It is above 15V. Modern cars do not exceed 14,4 V. Something to change?
