    Heres a Question that i would like too know,If you put a timing lite on an engine, will the lite pulse on, each time that cyl that its hooked too (when it comes around to the firing position) if the plug is fouled ..... the plug fires ramdomly.will the lite pulse on only if the plug fires or will it fire each time it is pulsed from the rotor bug on that plug wire....

    It only fires when the plug is fire ing. I do it sometimes when I am chasing a high speed miss on the water to see if I have a cylinder falling out at high speed.
