English term or phrase:dwell reduction
From a trouble shooting section (cars):
If the vehicle has a rover VVC engine then check in the engine specifications of the Icon that the dwell reduction is switched on. If the file XXX.XXX is loaded then this will automatically happen.
· Try switching on the dwell reduction but be careful with the onset of weak sparks at higher RPM.
After asking the client, I got the following response:
Dwell reduction is the number of degrees the distributor cam turns while
the points are closed.
(The "points" appear to be the circuit-breaker points)
My own resources supply Verweilzeit or Kontaktdauer. I can't believe any of them because I cannot imagine how you can "switch them on".
Thanks in advance!
