Full Size Image

Customer:

do you have the specs tp set crank damper at

tims auto repair :

let me check

tims auto repair :

look at the last picture i sent

tims auto repair :

you set the crank with the flywheel

tims auto repair :

take out the plug

tims auto repair :

you dont use the pulley

Customer:

you just install the pump and turn crank to set it so its timed through the pump not engine

tims auto repair :

when you set the flywheel mark..the crank is in the right place

Customer:

i dont want to sound but i didnt see a mark on flywheel

tims auto repair :

did you remove the peep hole plug?

Customer:

yeah but look at the first step in the directions maybe im reading it wrong

tims auto repair :

this is wanting you to get on the compression stroke

tims auto repair :

the marks are on the flywheel,,not the pulley

Customer:

thats what i thought thats why i wondered if you had the correct number of degress

tims auto repair :

set it on 13deg

tims auto repair :

it has a 13deg mark..or it should

Customer:

im not a diesel mechanic i got suckered into this the timing tab is pitted and cant read it

tims auto repair :

i see

tims auto repair :

maybe use some sand paper in the hole and turn the engine

Customer:

i just dont want to put it in 180 out want to make sure im on compression stroke

tims auto repair :

this may clean it enough to see the marks

tims auto repair :

follow the directions in picture one...it will be right

Customer:

this timing tab is on the right side down low with lines on it

tims auto repair :

the lines sould be on the flywheel

Customer:

ill double check and let you know

tims auto repair :

ok...just take your time,,do it as instructed...it will be right
