timing marks

Post by rutter123 » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:36 am

now the strobe light has arrived gonna check the timing on the gti, i have found the tdc mark on the flywheel but cannot find any relevent marks on the crankcase? i have checked the haynes and nothing there either apart from a 16 with a timing plate attached to the crankcase. anyone got a pic?

The flywheel is timed by putting a dowel through the hole in the block behind th starter motor which will locate (and lock into) into the back of the flywheel.

this is for ignition timing, not valve timing, will i need a timing plate that sits in the top hole? jetronic system so no tdc sensors.
