CREATIVE TOOL MODEL CT-4000 DIESEL TIMING
AND TACHOMETER INSTRUMENT (SE-2783) OR
(3005A) CURRENT MODEL
OPERATING PROCEDURES (Continued)
Connect the lead (4, Figure 7) provided to couple
the tachometer and timing light unit (SE-2783) or
(3005A) to the white coaxial cable at the 14 mm
Split-Nut Transducer (2, Figure 7).
Start the engine. Check for fuel leaks.
Perform the speed and timing checks as follows:
(See KEYBOARD DESCRIPTION, this section).
Depress the "RST" (Reset) key.
NOTE: If it is already depressed, release and
depress. SE-2783 or 3005A should be "powered up"
at this point, as indicated by the "- - - -" appearing in
the digital display.
Depress and release the "TST" (TEST) key
on the keyboard to place the SE-2783 or
3005A in the operational mode. "8888"
appearing in the digital display indicates the
unit is operational and a signal is being
received from the transducer. "- - - - -" on
the digital display indicates:
The transducer is disconnected.
The unit is NOT functioning properly.
The appearance of any other character
or number at this time means the unit
is not functioning properly.
NOTE: Once the SE-2783 or 3005A has been placed
in the operational mode, any of the functions can be
Depress and release the "RPM" key. The
instrument is now in the RPM mode.
Engine speed will be displayed on the
digital readout. Adjust engine speed to 700
RPM as shown in the PERFORMANCE
DATA GUIDELINES, Section 6.
Depress and release the "ADV" key. The
instrument is now in the ADVANCE mode.
Set ADVANCE mode to double zero (00).
Depress "STB-ON" key to activate the
strobe light. Aim the strobe light and in-
crease advance mode (by one increment at
a time) using the " " key until TDC mark
and front cover pointer align. When the
marks are in alignment, release the " "
key. The actual timing will be shown on the
BUTTON TO REACH DOUBLE ZERO
Depress the "RPM" key and increase
engine RPM to total pump timing speed, as
specified in PERFORMANCE DATA
GUIDELINES, Section 6.
With the ADVANCE mode reset to double
zero (00), increase the ADVANCE mode (by
one increment at a time) using the " " key
until the TDC mark and front cover pointer
align. When marks are in alignment,
release the " " key. The injection pump
timing (Degrees of Advance) will appear on
the digital display. Compare readings with
NOTE: Do not exceed specified maximum total
pump timing speed (RPM).
IF THERE IS A QUESTION OF TIMING
LIGHT ACCURACY FLOW TIME THE
PUMP AS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 5.
FLOW TIMING IS ACCOMPLISHED
