    Hello,

    I want to know how the points should be adjusted on an Indy 4700.
    There is 2 sets of points : should they open at the same moment, or like on a Ferrari 365, have 5-6 degrees difference to increase the dwell ?

    Thanks

    Thierry

    Each contact point triggers 4 cylinders, therefore they need to be phased 45 degrees apart.
