hi there im cam,

I think i know what you are talking about.

I have included a picture with a red arrow pointing to what i think your talking about.

IF this is what you are refering to, This is for a magnetic pickup from a scope.

Remember those big huge scopes that were around and they had all of those wires hanging out of it? lol.

you would pop the magnetic probe into this so you could set the timing with the scope.

I hope this has answered your question!

Thanks for any positive rating!
