How o set timing on my 88 fxr timing without a timing light?
A correct thickness of feeler blade is more satisfactory than a book of matches to set the contact breaker.
Checking and adjusting the static timing of a basic contact breaker ignition system is fairly straightforward though not easy to describe. It can be set by eye but using a test lamp or voltmeter (connected between ground and coil CB) is more accurate.
Begin by noting the normal direction of rotation of the distributor and then locate the correct timing mark on the crankshaft pulley or flywheel. Turn the engine backwards past the mark and then forward to align the marks. The distributor body is then rotated in the appropriate direction to the point where the test lamp just lights (ignition on).
Retighten the distributor. Turn the crankshaft backwards again and then forward until the test lamp just lights. If the timing marks are not aligned, repeat the adjustment until you succeed...

Case backhoe 580sk not charging no power to field circuit on alternator
You mentioned "alternator warning light" if that alt, battery light does not come on when the key is turned to the "on, acc." position the light bulb is bad or the traces leading to that light bulb on the back of the instrument cluster has a break in it. I know this sounds crazy but if that light bulb does not light it does not complete the circuit for the alt to charge!
