Fact is, the tone ring has only two distinct segments that occupy 180 degrees each. The sync signal is generated to one full crankshaft rotation and off for the subsequent rotation. It's nothing...

Would you care to explain how one pulse per distributor rotation fires six fuel injectors?

A sixth of a turn at the disributor would equate to 120 degrees at the crank. That's a lot different than the alleged 8-10 degrees of drift.

All that sounds reasonable. I do known of an XJ owner who cut the ears off his distributor so he could align the cap with the rotor. Replacing the timing chain would have been a better approach,...
