I tried using the depth rod on my dial calipers to measure TDC, but with it not being spring loaded, I couldn’t get a good read, had to just use a small rod and “feel” for TDC.
I don’t have an actual automotive timing light if that’s what you’re referring to for me to use. I will see if I can get a more accurate TDC reading and check/adjust again.
I still plan to check compression...just because it probably should be checked.
Manual also states to clean out exhaust port...probably a good idea to do that too.
Just put new tires and brakes on, I need to get out and abuse them!
