Good points John,

What I meant to say was that you adjust valve lash on or around TDC ignition and cam timing at TDC overlap.

Ususally, you can move the rocker ever so slightly on the rocker shaft when the follower is not on the lobe of the cam. That tells you that you are on the ignition TDC stroke. Another way is to look at the distributor rotor position. The shop manual shows in what direction the rotor points for TDC #1 ignition.

'74 Targa 3.6 (not stock ) - '01 C4 (almost stock) - '00 ML430 (stock)

I repair/rebuild Bosch CDI Boxes and Porsche Motronic DMEs
Porsche "Hammer" or Porsche PST2 - I can help!!
How about a NoBadDays DualChip for 964 or '95 993
