Hi Him!

That is all of the Motor Company info needed, but the language is difficult for me to understand, too!

I believe that the front cylinder ignition is timed with one pair of points set to .022, and then the rear points assembly is fine-tuned by adjusting its gap.

My experience is that this is H-D's finest ignition.

Please let us know where we can help with the Service Manual translation,

....Cotten

To me, the picture looks to show the single-contact-point distributor, no?

The picture you showed(and presumably the writeup that accompanies it) is for a single-contact, manual-advance timer(circuit breaker).

If you are using an auto-advcance unit, the setuop should be similar, expect tat it will not stay in the advance position-you will hav eto hold the cam in the advance position while you set the points to just open.
