Cam Synchro/ TDC/ Rebuild Question
Real bonehead question. In the proccess of rebuilding my 99 vulcan. Pistons, crank, cam, lifters, cyl heads, timing gears and chain, timing cover and oil pan are installed.
Going for the new synchro at this point.
Crank and cam are still in the 'just installed' position. They have not been rolled, the keyways and marks are still lined up.
0 (tdc) is right on the mark to the right of the crank position sensor.
Is this my TDC on compression or intake stroke? Is this the position that I want to install the synchro??
Yes, I could postpone synchro install until intake, rods and rockers go in, to roll it over to check the for suck or blow at the plug hole, but I am famous, or infamous, for setting distributers 180 out, so I wanted to try to head this off at the pass.
Thanks for any input.
