    Static timing sl 900

    Hi
    I have replaced the stator now with the update kit and need to time the engine. Is there a good way to set the static and dynamic timing with the engine out? I set up a dial indicator and need to know, does the stator fire at top dead center and you set the top dead center on the flywheel so top dead center is actually at the BTDC position. This seems to be difficult due to play in the motor. The piston stops moving about two marks retarded of the zero mark and starts moving at two marks in the advanced position. Is there an easy way to set the static timing? Is the TDC between the start and stop of the piston movement or is TDC where the piston first stops when moving the flywheel counterclockwise? The manual says to set BTDC at .0815, This isn't very much. Also a new flywheel was also installed.

    doing a static timing is a BIOTCH.much simpler to have a cutup flywheel cover that only holds the starter bendix in using 2 bolts,that leaves the whole front of the flywheel exposed,let the oil pump dangle down while starting and stopping to make and check adjustments,each time dribble a little 2 stroke oil down the carb throats.
