Some FYI, thought it is overlooked at times.

Did you originally have a problem with it? I've read online of people having issues, but in normal uses I don't see how you could have a problem.

The rotor is on the same shaft as the reluctor for the pickup, so as long as everything is installed correctly, there shouldn't be a problem.

I know the wires on the pickup are polarity sensitive, and having them flipped will change the timing, so that might be the source of some issues.

It's more important on crank trigger systems. They have to be phased.

That's understandable because the trigger doesn't have a fixed connection to the rotor.

I just don't see how you could have phasing issues with the trigger in the distributor housing, unless you're running a huge timing sweep, or have a defective distributor.

I never had an issue, just want to make sure was not leaving something on the table, in regards to rotor alignment. Something that be easily corrected. Working on crank trigger set up now, have to make a mount for pick up, have some examples to copy, as they do not make any mounts.
