In Topic: Timing Problems 1.6 Pinto

Could be but in my experience pinking is more likely to be down to lean fuel or ignition fault, rarely carbon with the fuel additives of today. Whip out a spark plug and let us know the colour (photo would be great). Advance timing can also create linking so please double check timing, finally turn up the fuel mixture.

The screw thread on the switch is about 2.5 cm and can be a pain to remove in situ but with a bent spanner and then small hands it can be done (kids are great). Failing that on one model the owner cut a hole in the gearbox tunnel and then put a plate over it when finished.

I believe its the sense wire which should come from battery and detects charge state to prevent overcharging needs a o on its own circuit. Not sure of your current alternator but very common on Japanese cars.
Look for alternator sense wire wiring and you should get a diagram (on mobile and link wont save).

Thats very early on the Rev range, I think you need to swap out with a known working unit.
