Default Timing Question

i have a trinity duo 13.5, which is supposed to have adjustable timing. how do you change the timing, i read the paper that came with it but it doesnt make sence to me. How can the endbell be turned if there are only the three holes for the bolts to go into? if i turn it the bolt holes have no where to screw into. am i missing somthing?

thanks for any help

I looked at the Trinity website and nothing in the information for the duo 13.5 made any mention of adjustable timing.

I'd assume any timing changes you'd wish to make would have to be done with whatever provision your particular speed control has for timing settings.

The DUO motors feature adjustable timing, sintered rotor, heavy duty precision ball bearings, and a light weight aluminum can. The best part is the DUO motors may be used with either sensor or sensorless speed controls. This allows the racer to run what is the best speed controller.

Wow, I can't believe I missed that when I looked...

If you just loosen the endbell bolts, is it possible to rotate the endbell or move the place the sensor wire attaches? If not, any timing adjustment would pretty much have to come from the speed control.

if its like the speedpassion, there are three counter sunk screws on the end where the sensor wire goes, loosen those a turn or so, and turn the end cap. its ok to take the screws out and look inside, it will make sense on how it works then. counter clock wise is advance
