    Timing an EG1

    Manual says there is a spark mark on the governer side flywheel but is silent on the actual timing.
    I suggest 17.5 degrees advance as a start point. Put a chalk mark on the flywheel at TDC and measure flywheel circumference.
    Muliply the circumference by 17.5 over 360.
    Measure off the answer in advance of the TDC mark i.e from the TDC mark forward in the direction of rotation. set the timing so that the points just open at that mark.
