Top dead center

Post  djebbcobra on March 20th 2016, 6:58 pm

I am unable to get a dial indicator into #1 because of body clearance. I believe there are other pistons that are up at that time also, that i may be able to get to. Can someone tell me where i can find that information.
I just replaced my 45 year old harmonic balancer and want to make sure my pointer is exact.

Thanks

Funny you said that, I was just reading another post about that. I'll have to pick one up. I have never done it that way. Shouldn't you still add up to 360' of rotation?

Watch a video on it would b the easiest way. Use an old spark pug and make your own .25 cent piston stop with a bolt and a nut.

Use number 6 which is the running mate to number one.

Thanks for all the help, I was able to get to #6 and check the pointer position.
