Porsche, the mother of invention

Have you removed your distributor? Rather not remove your valve covers? Need to find Top-Dead-Center on cylinder #1.. no problem. Just screw this high-tech tool into the spark plug hole, then rotate the engine by hand. When inflated, you've found TDC.

Does it require busting a knuckle to use it

That is a good idea.

Now that's another story entirely. But thanks for asking.

Occasionally one finds a nugget of absolute genius among the din here. This is one such. Fantastic "slap-myself-upside-the-head-for-not-thinking-of-it-sooner" idea.

:P Busting a knuckle goes with the territory on these cars.

You can do the same with a finger on most engines. But, I like the idea. Can you imagine the look on some people's faces when you pull that gizmo out of your tool box?

I'm pleased to report that the replacement of my chain tensioners went well, without incident. Engine is up and running with no sign of the dreaded "chain-over-trash-can" noise.

Even managed to take care of a couple of leaks while I was in there.

Nothing left to do but to pick up my tools, and go for a ride.

Ciao ya'll

T...

PS: The hardest part of this job was getting the rear tin back into place.
