I was able to locate the 170 Va parts manual that I had once downloaded from this forum. I have uploaded it in the technical section for everyone's convenience.

Here is a very useful Workshop manual that covers 170 V, Va, Vb, D, Da, Db, S, Sb and DS.
The Second Supplement for 170 S-V and 170 S-D are also included in the end.

Very hard to tell. Take off the distributor cap, and there will be a small notch in the wall of the distributor. That is where the rotor needs to be lined up to and that will be number 1. Then follow it clockwise - looking at the motor from the front - with the firing order I gave you.

Technical / Re: Distributor problem - I'm getting crazy....

Henry! You are right x 2

The problem was exactly this, the pin didn't engage properly.
I checked this several times, but wasn't really aware the pin should go so deep. Always learning something!

Also, the screws (if replaced) for condenser are really important to check they aren't too long. If so, things will go very wrong...

Again, many thanks Henry!!!!  :)
