Vespa 180ss varitronic timing?

hi all i have a vespa 180ss with a vespatronic  , i would like to know what is the right timing , as it is not shown on the instruction book and there is no mark on the stator.

 i have no timing light to check it too !

thank's for the help . sharlly .



Same scooter and wasn't satisfied with the running of the engine. Have just received e-mail from SIP: on the 180SS the timing should be 33deg, not 26deg!

You must get a strobelight and make our own marks.

Check for degree disk (print out ), TDC-tool and how to adjust timing. I glued the printout to plywood and bought a strong magnet to hold i to the fan.


Good Luck
