JA: Do you know your ignition timing number? How many miles are on the car?
Customer: No not my vehicle, belongs to girlfriend, man is telling her that if timing is off it has a bent valve
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: just checking to make sure hes not right before i invest he money to get it checked at a shop, and that it can be timed
