I am changing the valves and lifters on the all original 1926 we recently purchased. The timing marks on the cam and crank are both marked on the tooth which are not lined up like any I have ever seen before. Has anyone seen this before? I have only seen timing marks that are marked on one tooth (cam gear) and the other mark between two teeth or like where the crank gear key was broached between or (centered between two teeth).
I can reinstall the way I took it apart but I'm wondering why they were marked this way? Any ideas guys?
Human error. I saw this question once before, 4 years ago in 2011 on the forum and some good advice was offered on how to attain the correct timing without the marks. Jim Patrick
Thanks Jim this is just what I have going on with the original parts. Thank you for finding this thread on a discussion of my problem. I'll put it back together as I took it apart and I will mark the gear to help the next caretaker of this 1926. Again thanks, Steve
