Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: OT Setting the correct timing on a 27 Chevrolet

There was a mistake in the stamping of the fiber cam gear for the 27 Chevy motor. I am trying to set the correct timing for the crank gear and the cam gear but I read way back not to use the marks on the cam gear as they are incorrect. Any help would be appreciated

Welcome to the Model T forum. While this site is dedicated to Model T and related subjects there are a few guys that are into any thing old including them Chevrolet's :-)

Do you have timing marks on the crank? If not dead stop the piston to find TDC. put an indicator On the top of the intake on number one intake valve. Bring the crank around to .050 lift on the valve and look to see the timing mark. Should be on TDC. If not reset cam gear till it does. Scott

I think the timing marks are on the flywheel.
