    700 Timing Adjustment Access

    I used a jig saw and cut out an access panel on an old timing cover to easily get to the screws to adjust the timing on a 700. It worked well so I am posting it. Be careful not to lose the washer off of the starter drive when you take this off to put the good one back on.
    I just picked a coffee can off the shelf and scratched around it. Then I drilled a hole big enough
    to allow the jigsaw blade and cut it out.
    Also my ski was converted to premix.
    I thought about just adding oil in the fuel separator to run long enough to check timing if its not converted.
    I believe it would work ok but thats a choice I cant make for you.

    You install the modified cover then you set the timing then remove the modified cover and replace it with your good one being careful not to drop or lose the washer that goes on the starter drive.
    You have to have the cover on to start it or you will break the starter as the starter drive must be supported front and rear to spin. If its not then it will break teeth when you try to start it.
    The 'tool" just possibly saves removing and replacing the cover several times to get the timing right
    and makes it a 2 step operation so you dont have to guess or leave it a little off time because its too much work to remove and replace the cover each increment of adjustment.

    or just cut off the area of the cover that supports the bendix.bolts on with 2 bolts leaving the whole flywheel uncovered.on an oil injection ski just dribble some oil down each carb throat each time you start it without the oil pump running,let it run just long enough to check the timing.

    Good point. I had a concern about stability but I think you are right, that would work.
