Exclamation Need help on Zenoah 20cc engine timing

HI everyone, I've got a Hangar 9 1/4 scale cub with a Zenoah G20EI and every time I go to start it, it kicks back like there's no tomorrow. I had a prop strike with it last July and ever since then I have to close my eyes, flip the prop, and hope my fingers are still on my hand. From what I have researched, a prop strike can change the timing? I've watched so many youtube videos and read so many forums on how to find the timing, but none show me how to set the timing back to factory setting(28dgrs) in this case. Can anyone help me out with this??
Any response is greatly appreciated.


Regards, Antonio

Thanks for the quick response Dan!! Unfortunately I've already seen this video on YouTube about 5 times now and still no closer to solving my problem. On my engine I can't move the pickup sensor unlike the one in the video. So most likely I will have to take the engine apart and adjust it that way, which I have no clue how to do.

Again your response is very appreciated!!

Thanks, Antonio
