Hi guys ! I'm just curious, what timing lights do you use and which one is considered a good one nowadays ?


Personally I use an Equus Innova 5568

I use a Snap-On MT1261 timing light. I know some guys who use cheaper craftsman timing lights, they all get the job done.

In some instances I use a Snap-On digital timing light because it allows me to program the advance into the timing light which is nice for engines that only have perhaps a single timing mark at TDC or similar. These are quite pricey though and for day to day use I also use a cheap Optilux timing light which has none of the bells and whistles but gets the job done.

I have an old Sun timing light that I've had for nearly 30 years. Never had reason to change to another.
