I am currently trying to do the cam timing on my rally nova for a Kent AST2 cam that i have just fitted.
I am struggling to find TDC. I have a DTI guage but its not long enough to work through the spark plug hole. Have tried using a rod and an old spark plug, put the rod just "sticks" in the old spark plug. What do you do to get TDC?!!?
What sort of figure should i be looking at for on ther vernier when i have set everything up?
Does anyone know the angle between TDC and the cam lobe on 1 for a standard setup, i know its 108 for the Kent AST2.
i usally use a long screw driver down pot one for a tdc mark, there will be about 10 degrees with no movement, this is the dwell period, you want it in the middle of the dwell, is there not on on the main bottom pully to use?
