ignition and timing

Has anyone use the Crane 3000 electronic ignition replacement kit? I hooked up on my 72 scout II w/ 345 automatic, also have the PS40 coil. The problem is setting the timing. I did the TDC thing. Than drill a hole in the cap to set timing. After I got the rotor center in the hole, the timing marks where off on the damper. The distributor had not moved and it still starts, but diesels when you shut off the motor. Any ideas?

Re: ignition and timing

I figured it out. If you decide to use the Crane 3000 it's not that bad. After you drill the hole in the cap, you have to re-time again. Then adjust the electronic eye, and reset the timing. Over and over until it lines up (the rotor through the hole and the timing marks on the engine). Then advance the spark (sparks BTDC) about 12 degrees and you are set. This information is not in the directions.
