Thank you for clarifying what I wrote. You are absolutely correct and I would much prefer for him to understand it correctly.
As explanation, these are the facts. As stated I was a self taught farm boy. Bought my first car, a Model T, at age 15 in 1945. Did not buy a car with Kettering ignition until I was 18. In the meantime I did maintain my mother's cars. Ford, DeSota and Terraplane
Can not say when I first heard the word Dwell. At some time, probably in the late 50's I built myself a dwell meter. Up to that point I had never checked Dwell. For 10 to 15 years just adjusted the points and ran. My only commercial dwell meter was built for 12 volt automobiles.
So you can understand why I sort of coast right by Dwell.
