Book Excerpt: 1967-1976 Dodge Dart, Plymouth Valiant Repair Manual


  1. After engine overhaul or removal and installation of the distributor, the basic ignition timing should be set using a test lamp. This should only be regarded as a means of getting the engine started and to be able to run it to normal operating temperature.

    Final timing adjustment should then be carried out using a stroboscopic timing lamp.


  3. Connect a test lamp between the primary (LT) terminal of the distributor and a good ground.
  4. Turn the crankshaft until No. 1 piston is coming up on its compression stroke. This can be ascertained if No. 1 spark plug is removed and the finger placed over the hole to feel the compression being generated.
  5. Continue to turn the crankshaft until the notch on the crankshaft pulley is opposite the appropriate basic ignition setting mark on the scale on the front of the timing chain cover.

    The basic ignition setting for a particular vehicle and engine is given in the Specifications Section (photo).

  6. Release the distributor clamp plate bolt so that the distributor can be turned stiffly.
  7. Switch on the ignition and turn the distributor body until the point is reached where any slight further movement and the test lamp will light up.
  8. Tighten the clamp bolt, remove the test lamp and switch off the ignition.

  1. The following details are general, in application, due to the many minor changes in design which have occurred to lamp units over the years of production of this range of cars.

  3. Remove the lens securing screws and withdraw the lens. Pull the bulb from its socket. When refitting the lens, make sure that the gasket is in good condition. The parking light bulb is accessible after withdrawing the headlight (photo).

  5. On early models, disconnect the light wire from the wiring harness connector plug.
  6. Reach under the front fender and unscrew the capnut and remove the clip. Withdraw the lamp assembly from under the fender.
  7. Unscrew the lens from the socket and withdraw the bulb.
  8. On later models, remove the cover and lens (one screw) and withdraw the capless type bulb.

worth the money
After searching for this manual at flea markets and online I found what I wanted here for less money and brand new wrapped nicely. A handy guide for anyone working on an older vehicle. MOST information is fairly clear and accurate though there have been some inaccurate and vague directions.

Expecting the normal
Haven't had the chance to open and put to use. In the past their books have been helpful and easy to follow. Purchased to assist in restorations of a '69 barracuda. Let us know if you need more information for this restoration. We own the publishing company and we should have a CD with all licensed factory shop manuals, parts books, and more available for a serious restoration. A Haynes manual will only take you so far... Thank you for your business.
