: timing correction?

09-16-2004, 06:46 PM
ok i tried that thing with the cam gear adjusting it by one tooth and i liked it but i wanted to wait until my adjustable cam gear got here to do it right. so i tried to put it back by one tooth n it slid like a couple teeth over and i didnt keep track of the number of teeth it slid.
i was told to move the NO 1 piston dead center and match up the timing lines....here are my questions

how do u know when the piston is dead center??

where are the timing lines of the cams or cam shafts??

how do u move the pistons without moving the camshafts .....or do i even need to do that??

HELP!! !
