This is what i sstated in the DLE55 manual:
"Ignition Timing Adjustment: The ignition timing is preset on the DLE-55 at 44 before Top DeadCenter (TDC). The ignition timing can be advanced or retarded byloosening the (2) ignition sensor phillips head screws and slidingthe sensor to the full extent clockwise (45 advancing the ignition)or counter clockwise (43 retarding the ignition). Be sure to retightenthe Phillips head screws after adjusting the ignition timing.Advancing the timing causes combustion to occur earlier resulting inhigher performance of the engine. However, advancing the timingalso causes higher engine temperatures and can cause prematurewear of internal engine components".
I have read a lot of posts suggesting to go to 30degrees. So, why is the manual stating 44?
