I just got the longblock back together and went to set the cams. After an hour of staring at it like a complete idiot I figured I would share my stupidity with the board and hope that someone has a link to the rosetta stone of how to do this. Is there a video anywhere on the web that I can watch to see how someone would actually set the timing on a 1985 930 Porsche??? Ugh... and I thought the hard part was over.
I'm confused here, the stock pulley has a TDC mark for adjusting valves for Cyl 1 and Cylinder 4. That's the mark you use. Do you have Wayne's rebuild book?
