Question J&S safeguard setup help

I purchased a used J&S safeguard today and am planning on installing it tomorrow but I had a few questions. I was wondering how to set the switches for the modes? I know there is a retard all mode and a retard individual mode. Once I get the sensitivity set in the retard all mode I just flick the switches over to individual retard mode right? Thanks for your time.

dana,

I can only speak for the J&S 2-Ch+.
To tune it, I first disabled the SC and had set the J&S for 'retard all' (cylinders). Then I let her rip WOT in third to 6000RPM, each time increasing the sensitivity until the unit barely retards timing.

Next, I hooked up the SC and let her rip; The J&S retarded the timing by about 16 to 18 degrees! I heard no detting.

There'll be a slight drop in power at first, but that's before the J&S is set for individual cylinder retard. Once the set to 'individual' you'll get all your power back.

Regards,
Ed.
