light worked great but needs container

This timing light needs a storage container for storing and protecting it after use. The plastic case is probably fragile.

The one item that stands out is the use of metal to protect the plug wire connector. It won't melt if it touches the exhaust manifold. Advance Auto prices are high and you can do better if you do a little searching. However, they did have it in at the store and I didn't have to wait for the timing light to be shipped.

Comments about Actron Digital Timing Light:

Overall construction and controls cheap, poor light output, doubt it could handle even slight mechanical shock (drop)

Very nice, easy to use, timing light and tach

Verified Buyer

Comments about Actron Digital Timing Light:

I am very happy with this product. It handles ignition timing, checking vacuum advance, checking mechanical advance, and has a separate tach function. The strobe is exceptionally bright, making the timing marks very easy to see. Nice product. Highly recommended.

        Comments about Actron Digital Timing Light:

        I bought this since I couldn't find either of my old ones after a move. It's very easy to use and compact, so far it works great, we'll see how it lasts with use. I did find a nice discount code which brought the price down significantly.

                    Dear Sir, if you mean hydraulic electronic injection (HEI) or (HEUI) as on a 7.3 Ford Powerstroke. Then I don't think it will work for that.
