    Am I going to have to re-time my motor after installing this?

    It wouldn't be moving the rotor, cap, teeth on the cam or anything. I don't see how it would mess up the timing but you guys know more than me......hopefully

    Why trust this to chance , would always recheck for total timing! "dwell" (points gap and operation) can change timing so that the change from points (where your timing setis currently satifactory?) this could likley change when you disturb that by installing the Electronic plate, pickup and mechanism for the breakerless setup . Without regard I would check it .Also its prime time to remove the top breaker plate and see not only what advance springs are present but what kind of mechanical advance is there and available to you Tom
