Could anyone tell me where to get the sparkplug fitting for using a dial indicator to set the timing on a two stroke? I am also looking for a "buzz box" for setting points timing. thx M

Sears may have what you are looking for. Matco, Mac, and Snap-on would likely have it but they are hella expensive. Harbor freight may even have it cheap.

What bike is it for? Suzuki still sells the one (with a roller ball end - fancy) for the buffalo (GT750) for $123.67 part number: 99923-06491-LPT

Yamaha sold one for the RD, part # 90890-03002 but I have no idea if it is still available. Supposedlt it is identical to the suzuki one.

Motocarrera sells one for the RD for $109:

this page shows you how to make your own with an old spark plug and a cheap dial indicator:

No idea about the buzz box since I play with kawi triples which are CDI and don't have points (the CDI boxes are called buzz boxes BTW). I think you'll need to tell us what model bike. Otherwise you can use a dwell meter to set points gap and timing.

Make your own Buzzz Box

If you have a bit of electronics skill, you can make your own Buzz Box. There's a project for making a Buzz Box here: Silvertec Electronics Australia - Automotive

I think a 7 yr old thread may be a bit out of date by now. :D
Link to 'squarker' works though so may be worth downloading by two stroke fans?
