Pinking is a sort of hi-ish knocking noise, bit like a diesel on start up. It means that the engine is firing a bit too early - too much advance probably.

Either check the timing using a timing light or BODGE!

If your noise continues to the point where you have turned the dizzy so far that the car won't start, then it probably isn't pinking! so re-align to the marks made in step 1.
