Accurate ignition timing is one of the most vital adjustments you can make to your engine. Proper timing can mean the difference between winning and losing a race or even blowing an engine (as a worst case scenario). MSD Timing Tapes help you to recognize the importance of the timing. They come with eight different tapes to fit common balancers ranging from 5.25 in. to 8 in. in diameter. These tapes are marked off in one degree increments from 14 degrees ATDC to 64 degrees BTDC and are printed on a tough, chemical resistant material. Not only do the MSD Timing Tapes help you get an exact timing setting, they allow you to see exactly where the Total timing is set. Remember, the Total timing is just as critical, if not more, than the initial timing and the MSD Timing Tape will help you ensure that it is set accurately.

White background, and black markings show up very well. Also, the short length means you don't have to cover the entire damper, and you get a variety of damper diameters.

No Perfect Product

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

With this product I did not have to jack up the car to measure the damper diameter in order to by what I needed. It included all sizes in one order at a reasonable price and works as advertised. Once you find TDC and clean the damper it sticks like it should. I sprayed clear coat on it which will help to seal the edges from lifting. I like the contrast of a white background which makes tired eyes able to see better in a dark and tight engine compartment. ...read more
