Can anybody advise the piston position BTDC fully advanced for a Panther 120 please? The book tells me it's 33 degrees but I would prefer to set the timing in inches through the plug hole. Thanks in advance (pun intended).

If you know the length of the con rod you can calculate piston drop here

Thanks for your swift reply kommando but we (I'm acting on behalf of a friend) don't have the conrod length. However, I've saved your link in "My Favourites" for future reference.

I tried 150mm and 250mm, got 10mm and 11mm so it must be somewhere between the 2.
