    Head Removal - How to get cyl 3 @ TDC

    I'm going to be removing my head shortly and the procedure seems fairly straight forward with the exception of how I get the front cylinder to TDC. Unfortunately, I don't have my shop manual in front of me (someone borrowed it). How do you guys do this? Does it require any special tools?

    Mike, you can remove the pump cone and then turn the 12mm allen head bolt to turn the engine. You can use a screwdriver in the spark plug hole and find the pivot point to get you close and then you use the crank locking tool. To lock it down.

    Rotate the engine till #3 the front cylinder is at TDC you can rotate the engine by the supercharger with the plugs removed. Then make sure you can pin the cam with a 1/4 extension or 5/16 bolt shank.

    you can also use a 17 mm socket on the SC weel, just take the SC intake hose off and you can turn the engine

    Either way you need to get #3 at TDC I find it easier to do before pulling the head. But thats just me.
