Set engine to TDC, does this look correct to you?

Recommended Posts

Or am I on the wrong TDC stroke?

 

Going by the picture, can you tell if its skipped any gears?

Nope, turn the crank another 360 degrees. You want the lobes pointing at 10 and 2

hey, next time you're doing valves/whatever and about to take the valve cover off, wrap the frame with a garbage bag. it will prevent those unseen bits of mud/grass/sand from falling into the open engine. 

 

 

 

nice, you have a kicker, when you get done with the maintenance, tell us about it, aight ?

Seems the chain is worn, there's a difference in the sprocket angles. If it's still serviceable  don't know.

Rotate the motor in  anormal forward direction, with the ACCT in and set, or the MCCT in and set.. bring the flywheel timing line to the center of the window.

 Take a clear, focused picture from the cam sprocket side.. take it level with the center line of the cams... ensure we can see the cam gear marks of both cams and the valve cover surface of the head.

 

Take a second picture from the opposite side.
