French to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / gasoline generator engines
French term or phrase:calage
This appears in a a request for proposals to provide preventive maintenance services for emergency generators, in the section that details the anuual inspections to be carried out on the gasoline engines:
Sur les moteurs à essence, vérification de la mise au point du moteur, vérification des bougies, de
la compression, du filage haute tension, du distributeur ou du magneto, du carburateur, de la
pompe, du filtre, des boyaux, du ****calage****; faire les ajustements si nécessaires.
I'm assuming that "timing" is the correct term, but as I'm not really sure, any input would be appreciated.
