    How To Set The Timing.

    Green circle is can sprocket.
    Light Blue is camshaft.
    Dark Blue is timing chain.

    *Make sure the the headstuds are tightened down to the right torque.
    *Remove the spark plug so the cam is easier to turn.
    *You may need to loosen off the timing chain tensioner.

    1. Set the timing on the crankshaft first.
    Allign the T mark on the Magneto to the notch on the casing, which is usually at 12' oclock.


    2. Pull the timing chaining up through the cylinder into the head.



    3. with the Crankshaft timing still aligned, pull the timing chain over the sprocket.
    You may need to loosen off the timing chain tensioner.


    4. with the timing chain around the sprocket, rotate the sprocket inside the chain until the circle on the cam sprocket aligns with the notch in the head.


    5. Timing is complete

    Good job mate, this is a question that comes up frequently so good on ya for putting it together. +Reps for you.
    If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

    as long as the piston is up top of the bore that's top dead center

    should set it up mark to mark, and was it a full tooth out or half?

    Hey nice work,
    I went to open up the circular cover thing on the engine to check timing..
    Its the one on the left of your diagram..
    And I could not figure how to unscrew it...
    because it had a little notch and something blocking the notch from moving.
    so the only way the notch could move was clockwise which would tighten it...
    I dont understand

    above your spark plug(on other side of the engine) is a 10mm bolt....undo that and the cover will come off
