Timing on top dead center
« on: August 09, 2019, 11:18:23 am »

I  need some help to confirm the timing on my engine.
My roller bearings on the c/s were really loose and decided to remove them to make some brass bushings and added oil holes.
I'm adding photos showing the crankshaft in two TDC positions and the position of the cam gear.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Your valve timing appears to be about right with the first photo showing TDC on the compression stroke.

How is your electrical timing, ie: the position of your magnet on the opposite side of the crank?

It looks just right to me.
It should fire at or near top dead center.
